Are charter schools are used as alternative schools there? I am looking for a very decent school for my gifted son who is about to start 4th grade. He has been to both private and public schools and private is something we would prefer. I cannot see any for his age on the map though. Does anyone have some info? I have called some up and they only offer part time schedules because their students are homeschooled. I was also looking at charter schools. Some of those tend to be very good while others aren't. If you know an outstanding public, private or charter school there, please let me know which one.
