Designing an Innovative Public Charter School

We all have an important role to play in growing awareness and support for charter schools in Wyoming. How we talk about charter schools and the impact they have on students, families, staff, and communities shapes the perception of charters in our state.

Free. Public. Open to all.

Charter schools are tuition-free public schools open to all students who choose to attend them. All Wyoming children deserve access to high-quality public-school options that best meet their needs and help them reach their full potential. 

Education Is Not One Size Fits All

Kids aren’t all the same, schools shouldn’t be either. 


Charter schools are subject to the same standards and assessments as all public-schools in the state and are held to a higher level of accountability through their approved charter. They must follow most state laws and regulations, including those pertaining to special education.watermark


Charter schools use their flexibility to find unique solutions and approaches to curriculum, teaching methods, governance, leadership and operations. In exchange for their flexibility, charter schools are held accountable to high financial, academic and managerial standards outlined in the charter. 

Licensed Teachers

Charter schools give teachers flexibility to teach creatively and provide personalized attention to meet the individual needs of every student, giving students from all backgrounds the opportunity to go to a school that works for them. 

Parent Choice and Involvement

By listening to parents and staying  responsive to their communities, public charter schools are creating meaningful ways for parents to be engaged in their child’s education. Parents want and deserve to be able to choose the school that best meets the needs of their children, and charters give families that opportunity. Public charter schools are helping parents, teachers and students work together towards success. 

Different & Unique

As the saying goes, “When you’ve been to a charter school, you’ve been to ONE charter school. Charter school programs and academic designs are as diverse as the students they enroll.
