Charter Schools vs Regular Public Schools
While for the past century, we know the education system as a sort of a “meat mincer”, where we basically pool all different kids together and by the end of their journey at school we expect to see everyone equally educated. However, as we all know, this approach cannot work with everyone because at the end of the day – we are all different, and working with children's strengths is often far more effective than subduing their weaknesses. Unlike the traditional public education system, Charter Schools create more room for parents to be involved in the educational system tailored specifically for the needs of their children.
Don't be mislead by the idea that Charter Schools are public schools, a term which for many of us may be associated with low standards. In fact, the opposite is true, because studies have shown, that Charter Schools in general are some of the top-performing educational systems in our country, mainly because they work around children's skills and abilities, rather than allowing their weaknesses to create an achievement gap (which we see in regular public schools all the time).
In conclusion, considering a Charter School for your child may be the ultimate choice, if you wish to be involved in their learning and prevent them from falling behind under pressure of standard education system. At Magnolia Public High School we offer 11 campuses throughout California including Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley, San Diego, and Santa Clara.
