A. 
Charter schools are tuition-free public schools, uniquely innovative and flexible. In forming a strong partnership between parents, students and teachers, charter schools are able to create a setting that's particularly tailored for the students who go there. 

    An environment where: 

  • Parents are encouraged to be involved. 
  • Teachers have the freedom to innovate. 
  • Students have the chance to learn. 
  • All three are held accountable for improving student achievement.
