My daughter attends a charter school. I also work for the charter school. What would you like to know about them?

In General

-Smaller class size usually

-there may be academics that public schools have cut-like the arts.

-may be advanced classes-4th grade material in 3rd grade

-some require uniforms (I like because only those clothes get school dirty).

-If choosing a charter school. Do the rsearch. Who started the school and are teachers certified.

-What is the school's mission.


There are many things involved in selecting a school.

I am sorry I don't know enough to help either.  Not to hijack you post, but I was wondering how charter schools approach things like ieps....special ed....speech.  Do they have the same set up?
