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 Global Leadership Academy Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

GLA offers my child a quality education, safe and clean learning environment and many extra curricular activities, basketball, soccer, swimming, art, technology, volleyball, golf and some others.  As a mother who has attend both public schools and private school,  GLA offers a private school experience for free.

They school has changed the uniform and will not assist parents after they had to purchase new uniforms last year.  My children have the same color shirts and pants as they do this year, but have to sit in a holding room because the lettering on the shirt is not correct.  I think it's disgraceful.  I am not asking for a hand out just some old fashioned consideration.  They are ruthless!!!!  Why would you hold my child in a room all day because the letters on his shirt aren't exactly the same, but his uniform matches otherwise.  HELP!

i think it's overrated the school pick and chose who they want to go to the school and with this school it not what you know it's who you know to get into this school

My child has been here since she started school, when it was Raisning Horizon Quest and since it has change they name I have been disappointed. Every year my child attends the school the worse things get, the teachers my child had are excellent the support staff are excellent but some of the in between staff need to relaxes. This will be my child last year my child will miss her/he friends, teachers and support staff but I think its just time for us to move on.
