Re: “Turkish charter operators under scrutiny

When my daughter was in ready to start middle school, she was offered a placement in the best TAG program in the LR area. We visited the school and were not impressed with anything except the TAG program. We checked out the school she was supposed to attend because of logistics and was even less impressed academically.
My husband and I started searching all through the central LR area and he found LISA Academy. Test scores were impressive, teacher to students ratio was great and (according to testimonials at Great Schools) it was a great environment for enrichment and learning.
The TAG teacher at my daughter's school didn't like this. She called it a foreign owned school. Can I remind everyone that Charter Schools are not private; they are public? Any student can register for enrollment and then (like Magnet Schools) are selected in a lottery. My daughter was lucky enough to be accepted. She has enjoyed every moment of her learning experience since.
LISA has provided an exemplary educational environment for my daughter. She has excelled in her grades (4.0) and other academics (Math Counts, Quiz Bowl, Science Quiz Bowl, History Day, etc). She has also gained cultural knowledge of the world around her through the diversity of her classmates.
She is going to start high school at LISA next year and is planning to attend Stanford or MIT when she graduates high school.
