How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Accomplishments: Again this past year, our students continued the tradition of meeting or exceeding the school district and state averages as measured on the Statewide assessment. The state awards letter grades to schools that are based on a point system. Each and every year the state has awarded a letter grade, we have received an ""A"". We are very proud of this accomplishment as we do not "teach to the test" and yet our students continue to make gains as measured by the state. We are a High Performing Charter School as designated by the State Department of Education. We continue to have sound fiscal management that leads to a "clean" annual audit.
