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.

Colorado Springs Early Colleges Reviews
It takes weeks for the school to return a call to arrange a tour, and then you have to file an application just to the school just to see the campus. Seriously?
This school has serious organizational issues. I will not be enrolling my student there.
Colorado Springs Early Colleges is a failure at organization. While Robin Zooks was in charge of enrollments and new students, it was fantastic ... now it is horrible. I and many friends enrolled children with CSEC this year and were told they were enrolled. Now we find out they are not enrolled, and many of us can't get our kids into the school. This has been a nightmare and caused many tears and anxiety. Get your act together. If you could do that it would be great, but right now it is just a nightmare. If you say they are enrolled and everything is good to go, you'd better have it right. Right now, you don't. Get the paperwork together and this will be a 5-star place. Right now it is at best 2-star because CSEC cannot do what they say they will do.
