Charter schools offer families an additional choice in where their children will attend school and what types of special programs may be best suited for their children. For instance, many charters provide longer hours and additional schools days to help students achieve academic growth faster.  They may offer tougher curriculum and graduation standards and thereby better prepare a student for acceptance to college.   They may offer a unique difference as Perspectives does.  We teach character education though our 26 principles of A Disciplined Life in every classroom, every day.
