What are Charter Schools?

Charter schools are independent public, tuition-free  schools that are open to all students. They provide options for parents and students in pursuing the ideal educational experience. Charter schools are operated independently from the traditional school district with the autonomy to design innovative classrooms and teaching methods that fit the needs of their students.
