"Public charter schools are some of America’s top-performing schools. A quarter of the Best High Schools in America, according to Newsweek and U.S. News and World Report, are public charter schools, even though they comprise just over 6 percent of the nation’s public high schools. A higher percentage of charter students graduate high school and are accepted into a college or university than students in traditional public schools.

In Idaho, public charter schools are perennially some of the state’s highest performing public schools on state achievement tests in both English Language Arts and mathematics, and on the SAT. Idaho charter school students show more academic growth than their traditional district school peers, and this is true for all students, economically disadvantaged students and minority students."
