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.

Charter School of the Dunes Reviews
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!!!
