Our Insights

This is a charter school. Charter schools are tuition-free schools that operate independently of the city Department of Education. Most give priority to children who live in the school district in which the school is located. See our School Stats for information about safety, atmosphere and academics.

Many have a longer school day and longer school year than typical public schools. Admission is by lottery and the application deadline is April 1.
