A Mission to Serve: How Public Charter Schools Are Designed to Meet the Diverse Demands of Our Communities

This report from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools (NAPCS) profiles six charter schools that have “proved successful at closing the achievement gap for their largely African American and Latino student populations” and examines the different enrollment strategies at the schools, with some focused on underserved areas and others being more representative of their entire city. The report features West Denver Prep and DSST Public Schools, both of Denver, Colorado; Achievement Prep and E.L. Haynes Public Charter School, both of Washington, D.C.; and Preuss School UCSD and High Tech High, both of San Diego, California.
