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 Gulf Coast Academy of Science and Technology's test results to learn more about school performance.

Gulf Coast Academy of Science and Technology Reviews
Great school, wonderful hands on teaching. One downfall is their social studies instructor. Terribly incompetent and quite rude to the students. Otherwise the school is perfect for those whom want to enjoy their middle school life and take weekly field trips. :)
