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.

The principle is reasonable but some of the front desk woman that greet the kids as you enter the school are very impolite and tend to gossip openly in front of the children.
One of my favorite things about the school is that they have a website you can go on daily to check your child’s grades. It allows you to see the scores on each and every assignment your child has taken, pinpoints and breakdowns what in the assignment your child has gotten incorrect and shows what area they need to study harder on.
