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 Momentum Middle School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Momentum Middle School Reviews
The academics are amazing! The school is very small so class sizes are small. The school is very high-teck, and the teachers and staff are very good at replying to emails quickly. My child has done amazingly well there. They offer afterschool Art and Spanish courses for credit, too.
