Mission and Founding
Founded by a principal and her teacher-husband who, while both working in public schools, recognized the potential of charter schools, the Pan-American Elementary Charter School overcame a rocky start to flourish as a school that embodies a sense of family. The school's program is designed to improve the lives of all children the school serves.
Family Involvement and Partnerships
The school works hard to involve parents in their students' lives. Teachers speak with parents daily and send written progress reports to parents in English and Spanish every four-and-a-half weeks. The Spanish-speaking office manager helps non-Spanish-speaking teachers communicate with parents. One Saturday in January, the school also offers Parent University, a program to teach parents how to work with their children on mathematics and reading, as well as how to research high schools and other educational opportunities.
