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

Guidance Charter School Reviews
There are many changes you will have to get use to. The rules are strict but the experience is amazing. The teacher are wonderful and your peers are your family. Learning Arabic is a great experience. Little things they teach you will become very important later on in life. I am a SOAR student taking college classes. Guidance helped me reach my goal and succeed in life. I hope that Guidance is the school you choose to send your children. Who teaches you how to build a computer from scratch? Well Guidance DOES!
