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.

Horrible learning environment
Very Poor quality of education provided by this school. It seems like the students are allowed to take charge of the class, and disrupt the learning environment. In my opinion, I think the students were bribed with Kindle Fires for enrolling. Which are no longer offered to new students. By receiving these devices, the parents were lead to believe their child would be receiving a better and higher quality education. When in fact it is just the opposite. The internet isn't filtered giving students access to inappropriate material on the web, and the ability to chat on Facebook during class time. I have reported to administration providing screen shots of inappropriate conversations taking place on Face book during the school day. Nothing was done, nor has it stopped. When I asked about a more appropriate online social networking site that is used by other St. Johns County Schools allowing communicating between students and teachers. I got no answers. I've contacted the County and was told that these charter schools are supposed to follow the same guidelines as our public schools, but their isn't anyone to enforce it. How is this possible, and at who's expense.
