Founded in September 2002 with a totally fresh approach to high school education, City Charter High School has developed an enviable track record in educating the youth of our community. It has been recognized as one of the best-performing charter schools in the United States by New Leaders for New Schools, which awarded the school an Effective Practice Incentive Community (“EPIC”) award.
Technology-infused study, year-round learning, teacher-student continuity (over all 4 years), work-skills literacy, career mapping, workforce orientation and mentored internships are just some of the “best practices” that make City High so unique… and successful.
