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.

I've been to other online schools (PDELA, or I don't know what it's called anymore, I heard they changed the name.) was horrible. And public school was even worst. I was so glad to have found this school. I'm going to be in tears when I graduate, because I honestly won't want to leave. The teachers give you the attention you need, and you actually learn to be more responsible for your own actions. You make your own schedule, and it kind of just helps you feel like you have more control of things.
