Charter School of the Dunes Reviews

By , a Parent on

The Charter School of the Dunes has really pleased me this year! My son and I moved to the city in the middle of the school year from Indianapolis. He was a lil behind on the studies,but his teacher and her helper got him up to speed quickly. They did timed math, reading and spelling. By the end of the school year all of his scores to enter 1st grade are where they should be! He made the Honor Roll and will be attending the charter school of the Dunes this year for the first grade!!!!The Only problem I have with the school is transportion, I live about 15-20min from the school and I have to drive him everyday. Overall this is a GrEat SchOOl and AwesoMe Staff!!!
