How has attending a Georgia public charter school benefited the student?
Abigail says, “Attending a charter school has benefited me the most because of its size. Since it is a smaller environment, the teachers can identify our individual strengths and weaknesses and adjust how we’re learning if necessary. Every teacher puts so much confidence in each student and makes us feel like we can do anything. Because of that, they made learning feel fun rather than feel like a chore. I always looked forward to attending school because it felt like home. Every teacher and staff member knows you as a person instead of a number. I will always remember the relationships I made with my teachers because I was lucky enough to attend a charter school, specifically, Statesboro STEAM Academy.
