After the success of the 2017 – 18 school year, California charter school students should be especially excited about going #BacktoSchool.  

Charter public schools dominated the U.S. News & World Report's annual rankings of the best public high schools in Californiaand over 20 charter public schools received awards and accolades from the California Department of Education. It was yet another demonstration of how charters are helping students from all backgrounds unlock their full potential.

Check out these stories recapping the success of the 2017 – 18 school year.
