About Charter Schools:
Charter schools are free, independent neighborhood public schools open to all children, including students who are English language learners and students with special needs. Charter schools do not have special entrance requirements and have the freedom to be innovative, while being held accountable for advancing student achievement.
Each charter public school is unique – both inside and out. Some may focus on college preparation, math and science, and others integrate the arts into each subject. While the possibilities are endless, charter public schools aim to provide a range of options so that parents can choose the school that best fits their child’s needs.
Likewise, educators can choose to work for charters with missions, educational approaches and professional cultures aligned to their own beliefs and work styles. Visit www.incschools.org to learn more about charter public schools.
