We believe families should be able to choose a school that best meets their educational needs.
Because charter schools are public schools, charter schools are open to all children, do not charge tuition, do not have special requirements for admittance, and are not associated with any religion. Public charter schools vary in mission and model, serving a wide range of students, many with needs beyond the one-size-fits-all traditional public school.
What is a Charter School?
Public charter schools are open enrollment, tuition-free, public schools of choice, and are open to every student who wishes to enroll. The Texas Legislature authorized the establishment of charter schools in 1995 to give families public school options in their communities. Charter schools were created with the idea that fewer state regulations could encourage innovation for all public schools. Charter schools are authorized, monitored, and held accountable to the same academic and financial standards as traditional public schools. There are no school zones for Charter schools. As long as you are a State resident, you can attend Premier High School.
Why School Choice is Important
Charter schools are incredibly important, allowing parents to make informed decisions about their children’s education and giving them an alternative option when traditional schools don’t fit their needs. Charter schools give families the chance to choose the learning environment and educational style that best suit their child, providing more personal and focused instruction. These schools also have greater flexibility when it comes to setting curriculum, meaning parents have the chance to select the type of academic program their child may be interested in. Furthermore, charter schools are often located in low-income communities, providing quality educational opportunities to children in underserved areas. Charter schools can be the perfect option for parents who wish to give their children the best chance to succeed, and provide more choice and freedom when it comes to finding the best fit for their student.
