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 Lawrence Family Development Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

I love this school. There is a sense of urgency from all the teachers to not waste any teaching time and to support the student learning process. The staff and students are all hard working and eager to be at school. It's a great place to be.
