Considering a job at a charter school. For those of you who have worked at one, what’s it like?

I am currently working at a public high school in California. I have been there for 6 years. I just had a baby in December so I’m looking for a job closer to home because right now I have a 45-55 minute commute each way. I have applied at a charter school. Has anyone worked at one before? What is it like? How is it different than traditional public schools? I should also note that this charter school is a homeschooling program, so students meet with teachers like once a week for monitoring. From what I understand, students still have IEPs and meetings, and they would still need to be assessed. Any info anyone can share is appreciated!
