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 West Park Charter Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

West Park Charter Academy Reviews
My son started this school for High School. His grades have gone up to the top and the teacher he was fortunate enough to work with is the absolute best. I am an educator with an MS in Education in NY and though I knew my son was smart, I was very happy when I found out he was a straight A student. Thanks to West Park and his teacher, Joe Gonzalez.
