A+ Charter Schools were founded to provide a different educational choice for low-income and educationally underserved families in Southeast Dallas and Pleasant Grove. In establishing public, tuition-free charter schools, the families in our community have been able to gain a significant amount of educational control they never had before, empowering them to demand more from educational institutions, and to seek out and be a part of a place that best serves their needs.
A+ Charter Schools are heavily involved with the Kiwanis Club of Pleasant Grove, the Southeast Dallas Chamber, the Salvation Army, the Southeast Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and have partnered with the Dallas Police Department on several occasions. We serve as leaders on their boards, as volunteers, as hosts, and as problem solvers. We feel it is necessary to be involved with community organizations so that together we can make a greater positive impact.
A+ Charter Schools also has an important impact on the economy in North Texas. We currently employ 300 people, and will continue to hire highly qualified teachers, leaders, and support staff with the addition of 350 students next year, and the constant expansion of innovative, college-preparatory educational programs aimed at preparing our scholars to be competitive forces in today’s global economy.
A+ Charter Schools meet the needs of the community the most with the significant impact made on our students. We provide our students with individualized education that is rigorous, creative, and student-centered, set in a safe, family-like environment, to help fuel our mission of providing an excellent, well-rounded education that will help them become self-sufficient citizens in their community.
