My 3 children are in Explore Knowledge Academy Charter School. I am so pleased with them there. All of my children are working a minimum of one grade level ahead of their public school peers. The kids are NOT taught the test; they are taught to reason, analyze, and explain their answers. Having a Charter school for them is a blessing to me - they get a small class room private-school style education for the cost of lab fees and supplies.
