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 Pocono Mountain Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Pocono Mountain Charter School Reviews
My grandchildren attend PMCS and I'm happy to state that they are happy,receiving excellent grades,and look forward to going to school everyday. The staff are caring professionals who know each child by name.
They are always available to listen to parents and give advice to help their children acheive better grades. The academics are challenging, and the children are constantly evaluated to determine their progress. There is always a concern on how to better educate the children and keep them interested in learning, and expanding their knowledge base. My grandchildren come home excited about their day and willing to share their experiences without being asked .PMCS:A safe, wholesome,and challenging environment for all children irregardless of race, religion, or creed.
I am a parent of a child who attends PMCS. This is a blessing to have my child attend this school. When my child went to one of the Public Schools in Tobyhanna I had so many problems with my child and the teacher, principal and others of authority in the school. Everyday was a problem. They wanted to put my child in an unstable classroom. When my child started in PMCS they are academically sound and I don't have any of the problems I was having in the public school. Yes I would recommend this school to anyone who wants a better education for their child, children. The classes are small and better equiptted to handle all the children. Kudos to Pastor Bloom for opening up this school. And I pray that PMCS wins the fight the other schools are giving them. Shame on them.
