It's my understanding that a school that sometimes is failing or does not make AYP occasionally become Charter schools to improve them. Everyone from the Superintendent, office staff & teachers are replaced oftentimes by a staff that is non-union. Sort of a fresh start but usually with stricter guidelines set forth by the state.
its a private and public school. its private because u have to wear a uniform(i know public and private both wear uniform) but the uniform is serious. its public because all types a of religious people can come to the school
