Family Partnership Charter School is located in Anchorage, AK and is one of 97 schools in Anchorage School District. It is a charter school that serves 554 students in grades K-12.
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.
Family Partnership Charter School did not make AYP in 2009. Under No Child Left Behind, a school makes Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) if it achieves the minimum levels of improvement determined by the state of Alaska in terms of student performance and other accountability measures. See Family Partnership Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.
Mary: This is our first year homeschooling and with FPCS. We have had excellent support and advise from our sponsor teacher and the staff. They have helped us find resources and help for our childrens individual challenges. Anyone who feels the school lets kids fall through the cracks is not doing their part as a homeschool parent. The schools function is to support the families, and that they do very well, academically and financially. I may rate higher once we have been here longer, but for now we think they are a good school, and have recommended to others who wish to homeschool, that they consider FPCS.

Family Partnership Charter School
We home schooled my daughter in 3rd grade and it was fantastic! As a parent you get out of this homeschool program what you put into it, and if you are actively talking with staff in the office they are commited to helping. I have seen parents not interact and become upset that the school doesn't coddle their child. Home school is not for coddling, it is for giving the resources to school your children with a curriculum you choose.
I've been using FPCS for 3 years, They're unreliable, inconsiderate and let children fall through the cracks. If my child didn't have an illness that was forcing her to be home-schooled through FPCS I'd pull him immediately. I would never refer this school to any other parent.
