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 Six Mile Charter Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Six Mile Charter Academy Reviews

By a Parent on

As a parent who lives away from the area, it has been very difficult to have any communication with my children's teachers or with staff at this school.
My overall impression is that it is weak in a lot of areas (see the state's scores and ayp for more info) but puts on a good front.   Staff turnover seems to be pretty high - which ought to be indicative of something to a discerning parent.  My daughter had several teachers in a single subject last year.
The children also reported that teachers helped them get around internet filters.
All in all, I believe there are better options out there.
