WHAT ARE PRIORITY CHARTER SCHOOLS?
Priority Charter Schools are open-enrollment charter schools. As such, all PCS campuses are free public schools that have the flexibility to adapt to the educational needs of individual students. Priority Charter Schools serve a wide range of students that range from talented and gifted to students who need extra help to get to grade level. That is why PCS is different from the one-size-fits-all traditional public school.
Priority Charter Schools provide a personalized learning environment that promotes greater student achievement. PCS also places a great emphasis on character citizenship in both the teachers and and students.
Priority Charter Schools partner with both the parents and the community. All campuses operate on the philosophy that every child has value. We believe that every child is unique and that each child must be treated accordingly. See Priority Charter Schools mission statement.
Priority Charter Schools were first approved by the Texas State Board of Education in 1999 and operate under contract with the Texas Commissioner of Education.
PCS sees its obligation as providing a personalized education tailored to the needs of every student.
