We believe families should be able to choose a school that best meets their educational needs.
Because charter schools are public schools, charter schools are open to all children, do not charge tuition, do not have special requirements for admittance, and are not associated with any religion. Public charter schools vary in mission and model, serving a wide range of students, many with needs beyond the one-size-fits-all traditional public school.


What is a Charter School?

Public charter schools are open enrollment, tuition-free, public schools of choice, and are open to every student who wishes to enroll. The Texas Legislature authorized the establishment of charter schools in 1995 to give families public school options in their communities. Charter schools were created with the idea that fewer state regulations could encourage innovation for all public schools. Charter schools are authorized, monitored, and held accountable to the same academic and financial standards as traditional public schools. There are no school zones for Charter schools. As long as you are a State resident, you can attend Premier High School.
