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 The Mountain Community School's test results to learn more about school performance.

The Mountain Community School Reviews
This school was way too easy for me as a former student and although the teachers are very nice and will personalize your education , if you are an advanced student ( as I was) they will not provide you with a proper education. As you get sent off to high school from this school you are not prepared with all the skills that you would get at a public school and because there is only one 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th and 8th grade you don't have a lot of peers to make friends with only the people in your class . So if you are looking for a school and you have an intelligent , socilable, and outgoing child this is not your school. Rugby middle school would be the best place for a person like that , if you have a child who needs extra help , a closed environment , and dosent have or need an advanced education than this is the place for you.
