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.

American Indian Public Charter School Reviews
Both of my kids attend the American Indian Public Charter school. They love it. Great academics, very solid physical education program, no crime and no bullying. Students get a lot of work and they have to follow the rules. No question they are getting a top notch education and will be able to get into and graduate from the college or university of their choice. The hardest part of going to this school is that the kids get a lot of homework. Sometimes they will be doing homework until 8 pm. Sorry, that's life. Your kids can either learn how to work at that level now or they can flunk out of college later, your call.
