Independence Charter School is one of the best schools I ever went to. I was apart of the Spanish immersion program there from kindergarten to eighth grade and I enjoyed it every year. It's so diverse and the classes were a great size. The school is so nice and welcoming. Independence Charter School made my middle school experience the best I ever had. Wish I could go back and do it all over again.
