Why would students and parents choose a Charter School?

Students that attend a charter school is usually happy to be part of it.

Charter schools offer a more relaxed educational system. This creates opportunity for people to form real and lasting friendships. This is mostly because of the small class sizes. As kids get older, friends become the most important thing to them when attending a school and charter schools are known to offer a family type setting, where older students help younger students. It becomes a team effort for everyone involved.

Because of having less students per class, teachers can spend time to work more with a one-on-one setting and because of this, a student doesn’t get lost in the big city school system.

Charter schools also deal with less red tape than regular schools and potentially have more opportunities to be innovative. Kids want to learn; they want to create new things and use their abilities to grow. They just need the right setting to do this.

Charter Schools are tuition-free. Charter Schools draw up their own "charter" which is a set of rules and performance standards that they are held accountable to. This is one of the main reasons why many parents choose a Charter School over a traditional school.
