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 Los Puentes Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Los Puentes Charter School Reviews
While LPCS primarily serves at-risk youth, it requires all students to follow strict guidelines for behavior, and promotes the urgency for each student to set high academic goals. The unofficial campus motto is "College Bound - No Excuses." Most students may not get to LPCS believing that they can and will attend college. But, most LPCS graduates do believe it and have set goals that include graduating with a college degree.
