About Charter Schools
A charter school is a public school operated by a group of parents, teachers and/or community members as a semi-autonomous school of choice authorized by a school district.
Attending our second year now, and my kids are always smiling, thriving really. They have learned wonderful social skills. My daughter, once introverted, is now quite extroverted and reaching out to other kids. Academically they have increased their desire to learn and greatly enjoy the studios they participate in, which have been: dance, chess, rocket building, recorder, needle felting, clay molding and Spanish. My children have also learned how to assert themselves and speak in a respectful manner to resolve conflicts with others. It is a wonderful school!Leah
My husband and I regularly say that moving our daughter to CRS was the best parenting decision we have ever made. The changes that we have seen in her since being in an environment that accepts her for where she is right now and celebrates the unique needs of all of her classmates has been really huge. Learning all of the important lessons for school, but also how these apply to everyday life, and fostering a sense of community and responsibility is an incredible gift.Emily
No other local option would have given Grace the same opportunities to make an impact in her school community. From the beginning of first grade, she felt a sense of ownership in her classroom and school. Children are respected and treated as capable human beings. They are given liberty within limits so that they can make a difference in their own learning, their peers’ learning, and out in the world!Jennifer
