The underlying purpose of The People for People Charter School is to equip students with a challenging educational program in which the fundamentals of entrepreneurship are the primary focus. Economic, community and career education are integrated into all subject areas and throughout all grades. Students acquire necessary knowledge, skills and interests through a highly experiential program that prepares them to take responsibility for their own lives and to participate actively in their communities.

Points Of Pride

  • At People for People Charter School, we believe that each of our students has the power to change the world, and we are relentlessly committed to providing every single student with an excellent education.
  • We provide students with a rigorous, standards-based, and data-driven education anchored in the principles of exploratory and investigative learning. We challenge students to be critical thinkers and independent learners, who are inquisitive, confident, and resilient.
  • We focus on educating the whole child, holding students accountable for their choices in a restorative and nurturing way. We celebrate their successes and help them learn from their mistakes. We value our students' families as integral partners in the learning experience. We strive to create a safe and engaging space that welcomes our families and leaves them confident that their students are in good hands.
