Message from CEO

yasmin with scholars As we enter into our 20th year, I am excited for all we have accomplished over the past two decades, and all that we have planned for the decades to come.  We started with one charter school in Irving in 1996 and have grown to 36 schools on 17 campuses serving 16,000 scholars.  We are the largest charter school network in North Texas, and continue to be proud of our 100% college acceptance for our graduates.  We look forward to a future of educating more scholars and improving education as a whole for all children.
