Community Charter involves the parents in many activities and offers a more hands on approach to learning for the kids. It's awesome!!!!

We are a small independent school where the student's learn at their own pace and they don't feel the pressure that the public school system places on them. We are an Arts Integrated School and we're proud of the quality staff we have teaching our children.

I love Community Charter Schools because the school uses arts integration to teach the students core subjects.

My children have attended Community Charter School for six years and it has been an incredible learning enviroment for both of them, one of which has special needs. The hands-on, project-based curriculum is a wonderful way for children to explore and learn at their own pace. The classrooms are split into k-1, 2-3, and 4-5 grades so that children who need to advance or need additional help can do so without feeling bored or left behind. The children are also exposed to cultural activities through the African-American Cultural center, Spirit Square and other special activities that take place in downtown. With a school of less than 90 children, we offer small class sizes and more opportunity for one on one with the teachers. Parents need to take a very active role in the school with activities such as fundrasing, grant writing, and other volunteering opportunities.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
