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

Heritage Peak Charter School Reviews
We've been homeschooling through Heritage Peak Charter School for three years. I've been extremely pleased with the two teachers we've worked with directly, first Mrs. Bollinger and now Mr. Law. My kids love them too and eagerly look forward to our meetings. Mr. Law is always there with a prompt response when I have a question or need help. It's important to me to have the right support as a homeschooler and I believe I do with the dependable Mr. Law.
great school, wonderful teachers!
I absolutely love this school! My daughter is ahead of her grade level, but not so far ahead that she can skip a grade. She is able to work at her speed and is ahead in many subjects while still remaining engaged and interested in school. She loves the program as well and loves being able to go to the classroom 2 days a week and stay home the other 3. The structure works perfectly for our family, and the teachers are great! We are kept well informed of everything going on and have face-to-face contact with the lead for our school site all the time. I couldn't have picked a better school for my daughter that fits her and my needs!!
HORRIBLE...lack of communication with grandparent that has written authorization to participate in child's education. No return e-mails even up to the highest level (superintendent of TRSD and board president).
No better example of a "child left behind." Shame on all of them.
