    Pros

    There were some really great teachers at the school I was in.

    Cons

    (Please note this is only my opinion from the school I was at not Charter USA as a whole) The management was very unreliable, unpredictable, and neglected a lot of the behaviors that were going on around the school. I felt very unsupported.
