Great school. The parents that have criticized Big Sur Charter School are fraught with drama and lead terribly unhappy lives. My experience has been incredibly positive. Great teachers, support, instruction, and the students all get along and help each other. There is never any bullying which is a rare thing these days.

This school sounds great on their website, unfortunately, they do not deliver what they promise. They do not support their homeschool families. It is a fine choice if you have a special needs child and need a break a few mornings a week but do not expect your student to learn anything at the Monterey learning center. Children who are academically gifted are not supported here. There are much better charter schools in this area to choose from. There is a reason there is never a wait list at Big Sur Charter School.

We provide an overview and current status of the Race to the Top program that was designed as an incentive and funding program to promote education reform in public school districts across the country.
Being a parent is never easy, but some children are more challenging than others. If you're concerned that your child's behavioral issues might be more than just temporary, consider whether an alternative school might be the next move.
All students deserve to have an equal chance at academic success but not every student learns in the same way. Alternative schools provide students with unique challenges or abilities an opportunity to succeed in a different educational setting. Keep reading to learn more about alternative schools and their impact on college admissions.
