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.
Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School did not make AYP in 2011.

Ricquel: I think this is a great school if you want to have a child who does not lose his or her creative, unique learning style and a love for learning. If you want a child that still has a compassion for his fellow man and be a part of making the world better; and not just fit in a cook cutter education system we have in most schools. I wish this school was around when my oldest was in school. This school knows how kids grow and they do their best to make the best environment for all kinds of learners.
