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.

Good Educational Option with Small Class Sizes
Small Town/Private School Feel without the Cost or Hassle. "Small town feel" in that everyone seems to know one another by name and care about the child's attendance & progress. While I'm sure this school has its own issues like other educational institutions, I feel my student is not only in a safe learning environment, but also being challenged to think and apply the knowledge to future use in the adult world that awaits. Good option for home schoolers or if you are looking for a school were your child will be expected to apply to continued education beyond high school. Also, I didn't think my child was an "Artist" or "Entrepeneur", but this school really has allowed growth and development in ways that a Large High School probably would have "numbered" and processed an otherwise shy, but talented child. The former high school (counselor) proved this point when they failed to ask why the transfer and simply signed off.
This is one of the best schools in the area. The small campus creates a safe environment. Because students feel safe, they focus on the academics of education and not the drama that plagues other schools. I would recommend this school to everyone.
school of arts and enterprise is the best school in pomona california. you learn but you also get to do what you like to do like dance, draw, act , and different actvities.
My daughter just graduated from there. 98% of her class graduated. 96% has been accepted to a college. The campus is SAFE, she was very happy there. The students were very accepting of each other. I am very happy with the education my daughter got.
