Is there one central place, website, or event where I can go and see all Greenville County charter schools, and critical information such as admissions, policies, and what makes each one stand out?

If you have multiple kids, is it possible that they don't all get accepted to the same charter schools and you end up with four kids going to four different schools?

Are you generally on your own for transportation to charter schools or schools outside your district? Or is busing available?

Not sure about a central website

My older children (2) attend Langston Charter Middle - fantastic school (separate sexes) - one child was admitted thru the lottery and now her 2 siblings are eligible to go (and do/will go)

So, when 1 sibling is admitted thru the lottery process, all siblings are then eligible

No transportation is provided to any charter school (we have a long drive but carpool)

My two oldest went to Brashier Middle College Charter High School and we were very pleased with the education they received. I found this for comparisons http://public-schools.startclass.com...e-County%2C-SC

great website - thank you

Backstory: my oldest daughter was enrolled in Beck Academy (middle school) for one year - terrible year, disappointing quality, and multiple safety issues - once her younger sister was eligible for Langston, we transferred her immediately - much better instruction and safer.

GCS offers very good/excellent charter schools - also, I really like "school choice" with GCS - one doesn't necessarily have to move to enroll in other public schools

I've never heard of "Green Charter" - what is that?

At Greenville Tech Charter High School (GTCHS), siblings get an automatic "in" when it comes to admission. I believe there is the same policy at Brashier and Greer Middle College, but you should verify. There are no school buses for GTCHS, but the school will help you find families in your area for car pools. For working parents, GTCHS also has a good after school late stay program. You have to pay for it ($150 per semester), but the child can go as often as needed and there are people there that can provide academic assistance if needed.

there is the same policy with regards to siblings. there are no buses but there are carpools. the other two to my knowledge don't have a late stay program. People at clemson that went to the downtown campus hated it, but those who went to the other two (braisher/greer) loved it.
