What is a Charter School?
Charter schools are public schools. Like all public schools, charter schools are tuition free and open to all students.
Charter schools typically have more flexibility in areas like curriculum, staffing, budgets, and overall operations. They are held accountable by their community, their authorizer, and the state for meeting clear standards of performance.
