About This School
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. See Crown Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Crown Charter School Reviews
My son just completed his kindergarten year with this school. He started off the year rather difficult and unwilling. The teacher(s) and staff molded him into a model student. My 5 year old can read and write! My 5 year old can do math and even learned multiplication. I don't know what these other parents who give bad reviews are talking about.
Just putting this out there, but the year after I left, this school bombed thier AIMS test....mmmm kind of makes you wonder. This school has people not even qualified to teach school, it's sad when the state board of education won't even get involved.
you better watch out before you send your child to this school. They cheat every chance they get. They just recently had an adminstrator fordge a BA degree for a teacher who didn't go to school or graduate from school. You want her to teach your child and she has not taken the AEPA test along with a few others. Yes even now, charter school teachers are required to be highly qualified, meaning taking this test. Someone needs to investigate this school, the stateboard won't so you need to not go to it. They are only concerned with your money, after 100days if your child is not performing they will suspend them. One administrator, was excited about that last year.
My son came started Crown Charter in 2011 as a second grader. He was coming out of an out of state school district and was behind his grade level in most subjects. My son is now reading above his grade level and has improved considerably in every subject. I feel many parents leave it totally on the school and teachers, but a child's progress also depends on what type of reinforcement there is at home. My wife and I always try to expand on what our son was taught at school. He loves it, we love it!
You say that “The teachers, staff and administrators are dedicated in heart and spirit to making the academic experience of every student a wonderful and exciting time in their life”, however we have left several messages for my Grand Daughter’s teacher, to contact us about the remarks she has put on her daily activity sheet. As of today, she has not returned any calls to discuss any of this. My daughter is ready to pull her out of Crown Charter because of this. It’s very disappointing that the teacher has no cares, worries or concerns about what is going on with her student. My grand daughter loved her kindergarten teacher and was very excited to start the 1st grade with your school. Lately she has been telling her mom and I that she doesn’t want to go there anymore because she doesn’t like her teacher. If the teacher is not concerned about my grand daughter's welfare, then that makes me wonder how she feels about the other students.
This is by far the WORST school I have ever had a child in. VERY unorganized administration. All worksheet driven, my child did not even have a classroom library to be able to read a book when he/she was finished with his/her worksheet. No specials...art, music, pe are all put on the classroom teachers...art consisted of coloring a picture on every worksheet. That did not teach my child anything. My child told me he/she watched 2 children be put in time out in front of the whole school...why would a teacher or administration embarrass students like that? I do NOT recommend this school.
