Open Quote The two Options Charter Schools are perhaps the best "alternative school" programs in the Midwest. Traditional public schools that have separate alternative schools absorb testing statistics in the entire school data. As a "stand-alone" alternative charter school, this school takes the 9th and 10th graders who have been low-scoring and failing students and closes the gap significantly. The low test scores simply indicate that this school is meeting its mission. They are turning these students around with a tremendous growth rate in academics and continued success after high school. Kudos for these innovative educators for creating an innovative approach to addressing the needs of students who have fallen behind. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
