What is a Charter school?

Charter schools are tuition-free public schools and open enrollment to all students. That means that your family can choose them for your children instead of the usual government-managed public schools.

Charter schools operate with freedom from some of the regulations and red tape imposed upon district schools. We are accountable for academic results and for upholding the promises made in our charter. Cityscape made the choice to focus on our local community, providing the personal attention that will ensure all students thrive

Like all public schools, charter schools are:


Part of the free public school system


Held to state and federal academic standards


Open to all students without discrimination of any kind


Funded through a combination of federal, state, and local tax dollars


Not affiliated with religious group
