What you need to know about charter schools, the charter school industry and the debate over funding

A growing number of states are making it harder for charter schools to operate, while the federal government has been aggressively pushing for more school choice and charter schools are seeing an uptick in enrollment. 

For the first time, we’ve asked our colleagues in education to rank the five most important charter schools in America.

Our research found that the number one charter school is at the top. 

The charter school rankings are based on the number of students attending the school, student achievement, school quality, and enrollment.

For more information, see: The Five Most Important Charter Schools In America. 

1. 

Gonzales Charter School in El Paso, Texas Growth: 1,856 Students enrolled: 6,838 Students earning degrees: 2,906 Teachers: 10,053 The school is the flagship of the Gonzales charter network. 

As a charter school, the school has a limited number of slots to fill, but it is located on the outskirts of El Paso and has a population of just 1,600 students. 

Its popularity has led some in El Patrón to claim that the school’s popularity has skyrocketed since it began. 

In an interview with the Dallas Morning News, the dean of the school said, “It’s a really important school because it’s where our students come from, where they come from high school, where their parents come from.

It’s a place where they feel safe.” 

The average annual tuition for a Gonzales student is $7,500. 

At the other end of the spectrum, the Charter City School in Washington, D.C., is ranked #5 in the nation, with enrollment of 7,769 students.

The school’s director of operations, Mike Sutter, told The New York Times, “We’re seeing a lot of positive things, but we’re still learning a lot about our business model and how to grow.” 

2. 

El Camino Real Charter School Gains: 3,932 Students enroll: 7,079 Students graduating from the school: 5,636 Teaching staff: 4,988 The El Camino school has been in existence for just over three years, but the number and quality of its students is improving. 

After the school was designated a charter in 2015, enrollment dropped to just over 2,500 students and the average annual price for a teacher was $5,500 per year. 

Sutter, the principal, told the New York Daily News, “They don’t have to come here to study.

They can come here as a student.

They just have to pay a fee.” 

3. 

Benson Charter School  Gives: 8,914 Students enrollment: 11,926 Teacher salaries: 12,739 Students at the school earned degrees: 12,735 The Benton charter school was founded by the late Leonard Benson, who was also a co-founder of the Kindergarten Through High School program. 

Like El Caminones, Benson’s school has some issues, including a large student body and low graduation rates. 

However, Benson has seen an increase in enrollment and the school is currently in the top ten in the country, with a total of 12,964 students.

Benson is the largest charter school in Texas, with over 9,000 students, and it has the lowest graduation rate in the state, with an average of just 5.8%. 

Bennett is a private school and its tuition costs have not been publicized. 

4. 

Cedar Rapids Public Charter School In Cedar Rapids, Iowa Growers: 9,858 Students enrol: 13,564 Students receiving degrees: 11,074 Teaches: 15,717 Cherry Creek Charter School has a high enrollment of more than 12,000, and teachers are expected to make an average annual salary of $24,000. 

According to the Cherri-Hazel Johnson School District, the school is one of the “top five” charter schools for teachers, with the average teacher making $60,000 per year, which is nearly twice the average salary of the average elementary school teacher. 

Teachings are generally taught in a teacher-led, multi-cultural environment, with the teachers learning from the students.
