I have had all 4 of my children attend FRCS and have been very happy with it. It is a small-town environment, with alot less restriction than the school we were assigned to in Chico. It has some room for improvement with academic expectations, but the people and the 'feel' of the school make up for it.
I have two kids in Forest Ranch Charter school and it is a school based on the individual needs of children. There are smaller class sizes with parent helpers that are constantly challenging the children in academics and useful life skills that aren't normally taught in public schools. The community supports the progress of the school and the school is ran by the community and parents. This school is everything I want a school to be for my children and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to better the overall education and well being of your child.
