  • Charter school of the dunes is an awesum school! The staff members are friendly and loving people. The studies for the children are excellent and each class represents a college so it puts the kids standards above most. We Love it! The only problem I have with the school is that I have to transport my child. I am a single mom that attends school full-time and our school times are the same. Which means I am late most of the time. Overall this school is one to look into.:}
