We are coming from a charter school in Southern CA that focuses on Art and Global Education. Are there any schools that have a similar focus?

Have you tried using Greatschools "Research and Compare" feature on the green menu bar near the top of this page? You can see what schools are in the area, and contact them individually for more information about their specific programs. You might even try "google searching" for charter schools in that area.

check out Golden Valley Charter in Orangevale; the IB elementary in Loomis ( I don't know their name, I think it's a charter) and the California Montessori project.

Although we reside in Roseville, our kids have attended Rocklin Academy Charter School in Rocklin, only a couple of miles away. It offers World History, the arts, spanish, and a wonderful science program K-6. RA has a very active parent community. We have been very pleased with the rich academics, while our children have been happy and challenged in a safe and engaging learning environment.

I am told the tocklin acamemy is a best alternative... but very difficult to get in via lottery system.

Golden Valley Charter school is a terrible school. Their test scores are awful and they have dropped their "waldorf" curriculm to only 2-3 classes. Spanish is not offered in the upper grades and the middle school classes are not high school preparing at all. We feel stuck, because our children have been so dummied down in lieu of the art aspect that they would drown outside of this school

Have you been to Roseville Community School? My daughter has been attending for 4 years now and we're extremely happy with it. www.yourrcs.org

You can search charter schools regionally on www.calcharters.org or on greatschools website look in Antelope, Folsom, Roseville, Carmichael, and Sacramento.

Natomas Charter School #19 is AMAZING!! One of the founders has been a leader in the charter movement for over 18 years. Natomas is 20 - 30 minutes away from Roseville. Roseville isnt going to give you much diversity or charter schools (they are all about 10-20 minutes away) but the public schools (Woodcreek is one) are decent. This is coming from a parent of charter school children an active national charter school advocate.

Good luck!

Hello, I know this is an old post but I selfishly :) would like to ask what was the name of the school in Southern CA your child attended? I am currently looking in the area for this type of program.
