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

This school is the best school I've gone to! The teachers are nice. The staff will do anything in their power to make sure their students Succeed. This school has more teacher-to-student help. The school provides many art-based electives including: CP art, sculpture, Painting, water color, and other classes. This school also provides Student consular who are also mandated reports. THIS SCHOOL IS GREAT!
