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 Abby Kelley Foster Charter Public School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Abby Kelley Foster Charter Public School Reviews
"I didn't see it" should be this school's motto. They do not protect these kids from bullies, and they only score a 3 in academics? I am ashamed of my choice of school. I have been unimpressed with this school for a very long time, but thought I was being too harsh, I now know for a fact that I am not. I do feel my child would be better in another school.
