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 Rosie the Riveter Charter High School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Rosie the Riveter Charter High School Reviews
Ms. Torres and WINTER's board have dedicated the last 7 years to run an effective, caring program that provides students with high quality education, job training and many extra services, like counseling and educational monetary incentives for the students at Rosie the Riveter, Ms. Torres is a caring person, without her caring and hard work to provide the resources for the school I would have never graduated from school, Today I am an electrician taking care of my family because of her support. For anyone with any questions, please stop at the school and talk to the students, this is a great opportunity if you want to succeed in life or if you need a second chance like me, Ms. Torres and the new staff (my nephew is currently attending) are all great people that work hard to teach the students that there's opportunities, BUT, you have to work hard there, the staff have really high expectations and they don't let you get away with anything, that's why I know they care.
Alexandra Torres has stated many times she does not like children she has not business opening a school. She never believed in offering support to the faculty and staff. The premise was good but Alex and her minuscule board have no idea of the commitment and resources necessary to run an effective school. DO NOT PUT your child in this program.
I THINK THIS IS A GREAT SCHOOL FOR KIDS THAT WANT AND NEED A SECOND OPPURTUNITY .KIDS THAT REALLY WANT A SECOUND CHANCE IN GETTING A BETTER FUTURE SHOULD COME TO THIS SCHOOL
I think that this school is a disaster. The teachers put forth effort until they find out that the administrators have a different agenda than everyone else. The administrators are not qualified to be running a donut shop much less a school. Under educated and thye have no idea what a team is about. I feel sorry that I ever put my child in school there, it should be closed down. The constant fear of fights breaking out to the constant stealing and no enforcement of dress code. I heard a horror story that one of the on-duty para-professional tries to hang out with the kids and swears as well as discusses marijuana with them. I'm appalled and have no faith in a place like this.
