The school offers small, high quality classes, with credentialed teachers who are experts in what they teach. It's easy to home school with them because they are so organized and give you all the curriculm you need for a successful year. The teachers are flexible with how we the parents reach our educational goals for our child, focusing on the individual. We've tried other charters and this one is the best! The school was newly remodeled 3 years ago. It is beautiful, with a large playground grassy area and play structure. I also like that there are 2-4 days of on-site classes offered, including Bike Shop. Can't say enough about this incredible school!
