Charter Schools are:
Charter schools are public schools of choice that are authorized by the State Board of Education and operated by independent non-profit boards of directors. State and local tax dollars are the primary funding sources for charter schools, which have open enrollment and cannot discriminate in admissions, associate with any religion or religious group, or charge-tuition. Charter schools operate with freedom from many of the regulations that govern district schools, but charter schools are held accountable through the State assessment and accountability system.
Responsible To Family Needs
As a school of choice, we realize parents choose to attend our school, and also can choose to leave. Therefore, everyday it is our goal to provide high quality customer service experience for families. We focus on effective communication with families, and providing additional support and assistance to students
