This is an excellent list. I would especially pay attention to the responsiviness of administration and level of parent involvement/participation. And, when it is a charter school, the responsiviness of the Board -- are Board meetings announce, open, are parent board members open and available to other parents.

On libraries, don't "judge a book by its cover". Some newer charter schools may not yet have space and budget for a beautiful library, but will encourage reading/love of books in other ways (trips to local DC libaray for example).

As a parent who has already been through this, I think this is a great piece.
