About This School

Research Triangle Charter School is located in Durham, NC and is in Research Triangle Charter School District. It is a charter school that serves 694 students in grades K-8.

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

In 2011, Research Triangle Charter School had 20 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The North Carolina average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Research Triangle Charter School Reviews

By a Parent on

RTCA is a great school compared to Durham Public Schools and Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools.  The public schools do not teach the students how to get organized and some of the teachers do not work hard to see that the students pass the EOG and EOC tests.  I relocated to Charlotte and put my students in the CMS system and found out the entire school district is on Title 1 Improvement.   And I went into the schools to observe my children's classes, and I saw why this system is under this improvement.  The teachers are inconsistent and they are not taking the time to make sure that every student masters the objectives.  I commend RTCA for their hard work and dedication to my children, who will be returning to RTCA soon.
