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.

Riverside Preparatory School Reviews
It is not completly accurate that Riverside Prep did not make AYP. The fact is that graduation rates caused the school to fail AYP scores even though there was no graduating class last year. The API was 814, an amazing score for a first year school. When we have a gradeuating classw (2009-2010) that should change. It's too bad that figuring scores for these tests does not include some adequate scoring possibilities when a school does not have a graduating class.
this school is awesome :P
