The school has gone through some swift changes the last 2 years. What was once strictly an enrichment program with parent led teaching is now trying to re-brand itself as a part-time school focused on academics with teachers leading the way. The execution of those changes has been the challenge.

I've been where you are...looking for the "right" educational environment for your child(ren). I have two children attending Big Sur (Monterey). We have lived in several states over the years and I have never been a homeschooling parent. Big Sur is a gift to our family. The school's mission and design ...  Read more

BSCS has the POTENTIAL for greatness, but, sadly, falls short. We had high hopes when we left a traditional school env t & joined BSCS.

When my child began BSCS it had only been in the Monterey location for a year. I had looked at many options. Every school could be improved, but the unique thing about BSCS is that the involvement and opportunities parents/students have in shaping education is unlike any other school. It matters how ...  Read more

There is an additional 1 to 2 hours of community ...  Read more

We have been with the Big Sur Charter School for 3 years. We have a child with special needs and two typical who attend. The local public schools were not meeting my their needs, so we searched for a place that gave us support while still giving choices. My kids still have a classroom to make friends ...  Read more

My daughter has been enrolled almost 2 years and we both love this school. In every aspect where traditional public schools are failing, the Big Sur Charter is succeeding. I knew I wanted to homeschool my children but didn't know if I could do it on my own. The director and the teachers I've had the ...  Read more

As a vendor we have worked with this school to provide a quality art program for the past three years. They are always kind and respectful and a pleasure to work with. The students who work out of our San Luis Obispo facility are happy and productive in their education. It is a wonderful charter to homeschool ...  Read more
