It's a pretty good school. It has its ups and downs. However because of the Charter School of San Diego I am able to graduate before my friends, who go to the traditional public school, do!

I would consider my school to be a great alternative to a traditional school as it allows students to focus on their own schoolwork without distractions from other classmates or disturbances. The system of completing at least one credit a month allows students to focus on only one class instead of 5-7 classes at the same time. The school's program also allows student who are at a faster pace to advance quicker and finish high school sooner. If there was one negative I could add, it would be that there are not enough club and activities offered as, aside from an ROTC program, no sport, literature, or academic clubs are offered. Overall, I would say my experience at the Charter School of San Diego has been great for the three years that I have attended.
At the Charter School of San Diego, my education so far has been beyond amazing. Independent study has really helped me thrive and achieve my academic goals. The teachers are always available and genuinely care for your progress. I feel like I have more attention and asking for help isn't a problem as it was in a class setting of 30 students at my previous school. The classroom setting is always tailored to students ready and willing to put in the hard work, I love learning in a quite, safe, and comfortable environment, if I had known about this school in 9th grade I definitely wouldn't have hesitated to try it. I would recommend this school to any and everyone!
