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

Arapahoe Charter School Reviews
After working with the county school system across the river, I have to say I love working at Arapahoe Charter School. Many people living in Havelock think it is a far drive, really its not. The atmosphere at ACS is calm, administration believes in its employees, students, and parents. From what I have seen, ANY kid can get along and make friends here. The students are uniquely different, but no matter how different each one is, they always seem to get along great with each other. I love working at ACS. There's something about striving to be the best CHOICE school. And its FREE!
This is a great school. My children go here and we love it. I actually pulled my kids from craven county school to send them here. The staff at Arapahoe are very friendly and the school is very family and community oriented.
