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.

Pontiac Academy for Excellence - Elementary School Reviews
I absolutely love this school! The staff goes above and beyond to get to know every student, and to address all of the students' needs. PAE provides a very nurturing learning environment, and keeps the students engaged with the latest in technological teaching tools. By allowing multiple staff members to come into the classroom to teach mutiple subjects, I feel PAE effectively prepares the students for productive social interaction and cultural diversity. I would recommend PAE to any parent who is seeking a safe, nurturing, and contemporary learning environment for his/her child(ren).
