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.

Regret sending children here
This school is not a public charter, it actually is a private charter which means they make their rules as they go. Bus drivers are acting as disciplinarians.They get their lunches from a local elementary school, which means you must be there in the morning for the head count, or face not having a lunch. The teachers are quick to write up children for shirts not being tucked in, but wont do anything about children who make the teachers walk out of the classrooms crying.They claim to have a student support team " Some of the responsibilities include daily interventions with students, monitoring progress of our students with special needs, overseeing our remediation program, and working directly with families and students to plan for student success." This statement, taken off their web site, couldn't be further from the truth. Very disappointed with this school, and would never recommend sending any child there unless the staff (most of them) got replaced, or reprimanded for their lack of concern for students and their education.
My son was sent out in November of his first grade year and forced to complete the end of the school year at home, because the teachers claimed they were scared of him. If that was the case, instead of robbing my son of his education they should have expelled him, so I could put him somewhere else. It's the greatest example of teachers who are lazy and worthless, we're paying these people to teach our kids and they can't even perform a basic function! Go figure!
Our experience has been positive. My children are performing very well at this school, in no small part due to the caring and guidance provided by the staff and teachers. Parental involvement is encouraged and accepted with open arms. My children have benefited from the smaller class size as well.
I love Milestones. My child has done very well at school this year. He loves to read and is above grade level. I love the reading program and the teachers are wonderful.
