Public Charter Schools

Charter schools are public schools that are intended to provide innovative programs with specific educational philosophies and/or delivery models that offer additional options for students and families within the public school system.  Charter schools enter into a contract with Portland Public Schools for sponsorship and they maintain a high level of autonomy in exchange for increased accountability.

The Board of Education of Portland Public Schools believes that providing students and families a variety of education choices representing a range of high quality instructional methodologies is an important element in the district's goals and assists the district in meeting the objectives of its Strategic Plan to provide flexibility for programs that facilitate students achieving their very best academic and personal potential. 

PLEASE CONTACT THE CHARTER SCHOOLS DIRECTLY IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN APPLYING TO THEIR PROGRAMS.
