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.

Circle of Independent Learning School Reviews
We had tried many options before trying COIL, my daughter is a special needs student and became very frustrated with the public systems and classrooms. COIL offered so much for her to grow and actually graduate. I would reccommend this to any parent. I have even enrolled my other daughter who is not a special needs student into classes this year as opposed to public High School disaster. The teachers and staff are so kind and helpful, they actually care about your student and they know who you child is, not the case with public schools. You actually receive answers to you questions and you can watch your child grow while enjoying learning. Its the best I am so thankful to be a part of it.
It is a great school. All the teachers, the PTA members, and the very kind & helpful secretary and librarian are always giving a lending hand for the parents and the students. Classes are academically challenging and lectured for the students. Always a positive environment.
