Niche has published a ranking of the best public schools in North Carolina. Kudos to all the schools that made the list.
Charter schools, placed six schools in the top thirty places. Including Raleigh Charter(1) , Franklin Academy (13), Pine Lake Preparatory School (16), Lake Norman Charter (19), Lincoln Charter School (26), Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy (27).
A big shout out also to Franklin Academy. Franklin was founded by the President of the Civitas Board of Directors, Bob Luddy. Franklin Academy obviously does a great job educating young people. Franklin is also the largest charter school in North Carolina. Think there is a connection there?
It’s also interesting to note the top of the list is populated by different types of public schools; including, early college, magnet, public charter and traditional.
Kids are different. Schools should be. When students and schools are a good fit; we all win.
Congratulations to all the schools!
