Charter overall is a wonderful school. I love how the people are all competitive and at the same level. The teachers are great and everyone has your best interest's at heart. There is a nice balance between academics, extracurricular activities, sports, and outside-school events such as Homecoming and Prom. However, I do wish that Charter offered more college preparation. My English class never worked on our Common App essay and we hardly ever were updated regarding news and deadlines from the counselors and administration.

Overall, I feel that Charter truly prepares one for the outside world, whether it be academics, competition, and even people-to-people communication. Although the workload is high, it emulates college-level work. There is a lot of competition between students, but I feel that is healthy enough to let students grow.

I had a very good experience during my four years at the Charter School of Wilmington. The teachers were always very engaging, especially the those teaching math and science. I had access to many things that most high school students never will, such as an impeller pump and electron microscopes, and this school did a fantastic job preparing me for college.
