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

Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School Reviews

By a Parent on

Excellent school, high standards, unbelievable teacher attention! Social opportunities throughout the school year and my children's friends are all over the state! My children have flourished with this model and they are high achieving and personable children.

By a Parent on

Don't let the test rating fool you. This school does NOT "teach to the test" like the others do. They encourage and foster a global and well-rounded education. The curriculum is vigorous, but in a refreshing manner. At the same time, this school is very well equiped to educate those on the lower spectrum of learning. The teachers call often, care much and my three students are THRIVING. There are many opportunities for social gatherings and the school community is close and tangible (in a cyber kindof way). I recommend Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School (PAVCS)...and no, I am not employed by them in any way.
