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 Bullis Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Bullis Charter School Reviews
Incredible school. Teachers are truly engaged in teaching all children. This public charter school fits in core subjects, arts, fitness, social-emotional learning, leadership, self advocacy, critical thinking, project based learning and much more, into their school day of 8:30-3:15. There is optional Choir in the morning, and opportunities to do Extra classes after school. All students take a foreign language (Mandarin) beginning in Kindergarten.
Incredible school and while some folks don't fit with the model of innovation with intensive instruction in core subjects, arts, fitness, social-emotional learning, leadership, self advocacy, critical thinking, project based learning and much more. The public charter school confronts the traditional public school establishment and you'll find folks in that model attacking - but this school shows the future path of public education. Thankfully there is a tremendous community supporting this group - brave enough to stand up against the current of mediocrity.
