Jersey City Global: More than just a school

Guest blog by Cynthia Cartagena

Choosing the right school for my son was not an easy task, I researched several schools, private and non-private, in search of a well-rounded school that offered a challenging yet adequate education that was suitable for each child. I wanted a school that welcomed, desired and encouraged parental involvement and a school that gave back to their community. It is empowering as a parent to know that we have options to choose from when selecting the perfect school for our children.  Charter schools make this process of choice possible.  Jersey City Global Charter School not only offers an excellent and unique curriculum; it offers our children and their families opportunities that are not given elsewhere; while teaching our children about the real world and how to succeed outside of school. My family is extremely happy with our choice in selecting a Charter School for our son’s education.
