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.

By a Current Student on

I enrolled in this school for the year of 2013-2014 and it is definitely a great school!!! The teachers care a lot about your education and are there to help. The tutors are also great and the principal is very sweet. I definitely recommend this school!!! They really care about you and make sure you understand what you are learning. They definitely deserve five stars!!!

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.
