  • What is your teacher to student ratio?  

    • We have one teacher per classroom and plan to have one teacher’s aid per teacher.  We are coordinating a partnership with the Education Program of SNHU.  With this program, additional services will supplement the classroom hands-on student ratio.  Like other STEM Charter Schools, our teachers plan to involve the parental and business community for in-class innovative learning with scientists, leaders in technologies, engineers, and other industry professionals.  

  • Does this take money from the Windham School District? 

    • Charter Schools are funded by three main components:

1. Funds provided on a per pupil basis directly from the state and; 

2. Adequacy funds which are required to follow the student, and provided to the school by the state. 

3. Parental donations. Since charter schools receive about half what a typical public school takes in, charter schools depend on parental donations to make up for the deficit.
