The subject matter at the schools differ widely, but there are only a handful of Charters in Maine. I think the "bully pulpit" of Governor wants it that way so he can actually try to run something.
the Baxter Academy for Technology and Science sticks to STEM subjects. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The Magnet School in Limestone, which is a state school, not a Charter school has nearly the same purpose.
The Maine Academy of Natural Sciences has a core of Agriculture and Forestry as subject matter, both this School and Baxter are for grades 8-12, or 6-12.
There are two K-6 schools too, Fiddlehead and Cornville Regional Charter School, these two teach traditional subjects but in a manner the uses small groups, if I understand that correctly.
