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 Four Corners Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Four Corners Charter School had 17 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Florida average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Four Corners Charter School Reviews
I love this school. the teachers know what the kids need to do well and they put all efforts to get each child where they have to be in their academic level. The staff are nice snd help. the school really look like they care of the students and that is rare. My two girls will be continiung going there until they graduate to high school.
My child is a former student due to the school not having adequate bussing. I was very pleased with the efforts of the teachers,for the most part,also my childs progress.
The school informed us that Polk County was the only surrounding couny not to provide bussing for their students. This is unfortunate, they should look into the percentage of students enrolled into this school from Polk County.
The county informed us that the school states their number of Polk county students doesn't warrent a bus. This is absolutely not true ! Again check the percentage of Polk Co students attending.
It was always my belief,along with other parents, that the school didn't push the issue with Polk Co due to the fact they ran an after school program that was a financial asset to them. Their before & after care program was VERY exspensive, this always made me wonder if it weren't such an asset to them financially- would they have persued the bussing issue a little more aggressively ! ? ! ?
I am very pleased with this school since I enrolled my child. I plan to get more involved. My child is doing well and has made friends since he started school there this year.....the staff is great!
I very much like this school and enjoy the facility, wish i had more time to volunteer, which for the new school year i see myself more involved for my childs education.
