How is a charter school different from a neighborhood public school?

A charter school is a publicly funded, independent school established by teachers, parents, or community groups under the terms of a charter with a local school district. Charter schools generally offer something unique compared to a neighborhood school. At TPCA, several items make us unique: 

  • High expectations for academics and behavior within a supportive environment
  • The principals of good character are integrated into daily instruction
  • The role of parents to support the mission of the school
  • A uniform dress code (K–8) and dress code (9–12)
  • All grades on a single campus, with greater flexibility to accommodate advanced learners
