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.

Aveson School of Leaders Reviews
An amazing cooperative community of teachers and parents. We're so grateful to have found it and that our 10 year old son is finally there (it took us 3 years to win the school's admittance lottery).
Too many good intentions, but with no accountability. Criticism is ignored, probably in the hope that the problems will disappear. Possibly the issue is not enough staff to respond to complaints. Constant requests for parent help - even to the point of asking parents to supervise at lunch times. They have done very poorly in getting help from the local community, with the result that the PUSD has called public meetings on the problem. There are one or two excellent teachers, but that's true for any school.
