What is a charter school?

Charter schools are public schools that have the flexibility to adapt to the educational needs of individual students.  Charter schools vary in mission and model, serving a wide range of students, many with needs beyond the one-size-fits-all traditional public school.  Often, charter schools provide a personalized learning environment that promotes greater student achievement.  In exchange for some autonomy, charter schools have increased accountability and must meet the testing standards dictated by the state.
