Christie Visits Somerset Charter School

A charter school with academic achievements that seem out of this world, ones that are NASA experiments that soar to the International Space Station. “When it comes back from the International Space Center we’re going to see the difference in microgravity to gravity,” said Principal Oguz Yildiz.


Today, Gov. Chris Christie witnessed the academic prowess of these aspiring engineers at Thomas Edison EnergySmart Charter School in Somerset, including one student predicting and solving a Rubik’s Cube in seconds. On the 20th anniversary of the state Charter School Act, the governor came here to tout this charter school’s successes as a model.

“The formula for learning is outperforming the expectations at every level. As a tier one public school you are aspiring the development of more cutting edge classrooms across New Jersey. Over the last three years this school has received a tier rank of one, the highest possible based on the standards of charter school performance framework that we have here in the state and you’re to be congratulated for it,” he said.
