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 Carter Community Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Carter Community Charter School had 14 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The North Carolina average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Carter Community Charter School Reviews
No STAR is what it should be
School administration isn't capable of growing students; teachers don't prepare the students for the next grade level; unorganized and highly dysfunctional; GHETTO acting office staff. Overall, worst "School of Choice" in North Carolina! Seems the focus is on the wrong things...sure it's a uniform school but not all parents can afford to buy a hoodie for $25 and they aren't allowed to wear ANYTHING other than this hoodie inside of this cold building. No wonder the enrollment is declining! Children are not able to eat free breakfast even though they qualify and receive free lunch...so you have kids in class hungry?! Really?
Unorganized, unstructured, poor teachers, unqualified staff and administrators. If you do not care about your child's education this is the perfect place for them.
Carter is the worst school ever,parents do not take your children to this school ,you will regret it.
This was my son's first year here in sixth grade. He did well and I support the middle school. I know for sure the middle school is doing great things. My daughter will be going there for sixth grade this fall.
I think that they need help, and I plan to volunteer.
