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

New Vision Charter School Reviews
My children have been going to New Vision for over 4 years, and I love it. The curriculum is based on Core Knowledge and is very rigorous. In addition, the children all have teaching in Spanish and character development. I am impressed with how creative the teachers are and how many opportunities students have to learn public speaking skills. There has been somewhat of a high turnover rate with the teaching staff over the last few years, and I did question the abilities of a couple of teachers a couple of years ago. But the teachers in question (all teaching in the middle school) were not asked to return the following year, so I guess the board's oversight worked.
