Roots to grow, wings to fly

At Russell Byers Charter School, our mission is to provide students with roots to grow and wings to fly. We offer a safe, stimulating environment with a rigorous academic education, grounded in EL Education (formerly known as Expeditionary Learning). Through our unique approach, students thrive and take responsibility for their own learning to become powerful communicators, creative problem solvers, and compassionate, engaged citizens.

We design our curriculum to support this mission, and we hire the staff members who can best deliver it.
