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

Farnham Charter School Reviews
Farnham is a small school where children get a lot of individual attention. What I like most about the school is their effort in always trying to expose the children to new ideas! This year, a group of parents and the school administration got together to start a School Garden. https://www.facebook.com/FarnhamsGrowingCircle
The Growing Circle is now a 501(c)3 and parents are busy trying to raise funds to get the Garden going.
