Charter School - July 19th 2012, 06:09 AM

So right now I'm on the waiting list to go to a charter school. I should be in by September or so. The thing is what is a Charter School??? I've looked it up and it has said "It does not use the traditional methods that regular public schools use. Does anyone go to a Charter School?? Do they have proms and do fun stuff?? Thanks!

Why do you hurt me and treat me like you do? What have I done to deserve this from you? Would you do the things you do if you were me and I were you?

Counting that your in the US; a charter school is similar to a regular public school as they receive funding from the DOE and must achieve certain test scores to retain the funding. The main difference between the two is that charter schools don't necessarily need to follow the "common core standards" set up by the DOE. Often times Charter schools are in charge of creating their own standards to gauge success; because they do this personally some charter schools are able to reunite a common theme or value at their school.

Hope that helps!

Hey there,

My partner went to a charter school for nine years. A charter school is basically just another free public American school that still needs to meet the same standards in education, the only difference is that they may not go by the exact public school curriculum. For example, my partner learned vastly about Norse, Greek and Egyptian mythology along with did a lot more with music, while my school I learned close to nothing about any of that and instead learned very "color within the lines" math, science, history, and English.

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions, and I can ask him as well.
