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.

Career Connections Charter High School Reviews
This school is great for most students. If you are trying to get a scholarship for sports or are extremely gifted, then I'd say stick with a large public school that can accomodate those things. Other wise, this school has small classrooms, a bunch of extracurricular clubs, and is set up to help students succeed in the real world, not just theoretical text book situations.
