Carlisle's Richard Rose Central Academy has come out of Special Measures, according to the results of an Ofsted inspection in March.
It was the first inspection since the Academy was taken over by United Learning in September 2014.
In its findings, leadership of the academy was graded as Good, while all other areas were judged to Require Improvement.
In their report, inspectors praised staff and pupils, and said "there has been a marked improvement in the behaviour of students and the attitudes they display."
However, inspector's also said that several areas still required improvement, including achievement of pupils, behaviour and safety of pupils, and inconsistencies in some areas of teaching.
The Academy says it is encouraged by Ofsted's report.
Carlisle's Richard Rose Central Academy has been placed into special measures for the second time in four years.
Inspectors say standards at the school are unacceptable. Pupil achievement and quality of teaching were criticised.
The school was last put into special measures in early 2009, just months after it opened.
Governors have written to parents to say they will respond to the issues quickly and effectively. They appointed a new executive principal to try and tackle the concerns.
