    Charter School of Excellence has the best student to teacher ratio in the city and as a result students get the individualized attention and instruction they need and the teachers are better in tune with the needs of their students. CSE has unique programs with a strong focus in the arts. Before you make the important decision about where your middle school/high school student will get their education I recommend you tour the facilities and see what CSE has to offer!
