Q : What is a Charter School?
A: Charter schools are public schools that operate with an agreement (or charter) with a state, school district, or governmental entity to provide an enhanced education that is often unavailable within the conventional public schooling setting. These schools are open to all students, do not charge tuition, have no religious affiliation, and must abide by the same state and federal testing, financial, anti-discrimination, health, and safety regulations as all public schools. They typically have higher levels of parent, student, and community involvement and often realize higher student achievement.
Our campus is small by design, which gives it a private school atmosphere where parents, faculty, and staff can work together for the benefit of each child. Though it may seem like a small private school, it is an established, tuition-free public school of choice.

distributed in the classroom. Students may NOT share snacks at any time, including lunch.
Food and drink (except bottled water with lids) are not permitted in the classrooms. There are

They may refill them from any of the drinking fountains on campus.

Any medication should be signed in at Back to School Night or through the office with the Medication Administration Form. All medication must be in the original container and can be dispensed only by the Nurse.
