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 Futures High School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Futures High School Reviews
Futures high school is a good school. The teachers will do everything they can to help your child's grades improve but their is one problem. If your child is not Russian or Ukrainian he/she will see a lot of racism. I see a lot of hate towards me for no reason well just because I'm mexican. Its not right and the teachers don't see it. So if your child is Russian or Ukrainian this school is good for you but anyone else this school is not for you.
Futures its a really good school. My child has been going there for three years and her reading and study habits improved. The teachers are wonderful and students get a great education.
