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.

Escondido Charter High School Reviews
This is one of the best places to be. As a student, I have been able to connect with faculty on a deeper level the typical teacher-student relationships, and have branched out in many areas. Charter encourages the uniqueness and intelligent discussions, etc. that make each person themselves. No where else can such a positive influence be found. I highly recommend ECHS to anyone willing to step out of the box a little and accept the weirdness inside themselves that we all know everyone has.
