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.

Higher Ground Academy Reviews
Higher Ground Academy has a very strong and challenging program in chemistry class. The AP chemistry class is a good program where students are using modern technology, which is the same tools as that of universities and college. So the advantage is great for those students who are taking such a class.
