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.

Karl G Maeser Preparatory Academy Reviews
There is a reason that Newsweek rated this school the number one high school in Utah--it is a great school! Small class sizes, varied opportunites to learn, advanced classes, a wonderful headmaster who knows each child personally, a beautiful new building, Winterim in January where the kids can spend three weeks studying something unique and do service....it is a wonderful school!
