Give Parents a Choice
Charter schools provide parents an alternative to traditional district schools. They also give parents the opportunity to choose a school based upon what they think will work best for their child.
Offer Innovative Programs
Charter schools have flexibility in the way they operate. Many charters have longer school days and years and offer programs in the arts, science and languages.
Serve All Children
Charter schools welcome all children, including students with special needs and English Language Learners.
Prepare Students for Success in College and a Career
NYC charter schools made significant gains, and outperformed their district counterparts in both ELA and Math. African-American and Hispanic charter students continue to outperform their district peers.
