About this school

As an independently-authorized and accredited charter school, we are able to offer our families the best of two worlds: public education along with all the benefits of an independent school-- a truly college preparatory curriculum, a 14:1 student faculty ratio, and partnerships with organizations and corporations that take our classrooms out into the world around us. Our goal is to grow young people who are responsive to the world around them because they have been seen, valued and supported.
