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 Mystic Valley Regional Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Mystic Valley Regional Charter School Reviews
My husband and I recently changed our children over to MVRCS for the current school year. We had heard excellent things about and knew we wanted them there. When we got the call that they had space it was a no-brainer. Not only does the school curriculum exceed our expectations, but the most important thing we have found is that they foster a sense of self confidence in children like no other school i have seen before. This self confidence resonates in my children in only a few weeks of being at this school. I know they will take that and shine in their future at this school!
Mystic Valley Charter School doesn't meet the needs of children with moderate learning disabilities. The administration has teaching assistants work directly with students due to being short staffed. The classroom ratio from third grade and up is 30 students to one inexperienced classroom teacher. The school is run like a business. They would rather buy property to expand the school rather than retain teachers and raise their salaries. That doesn't sound like quality education to me!
