At Highlander Charter School, students get individual attention, build lasting bonds, and use customized plans to learn in the ways that are most effective for them.
Highlander is an urban charter school with 272 students in grades K-8 located in the heart of Providence. It offers all the benefits of a private school – small classes, diverse populations, individual attention from teachers – in a public school setting.
With only 18 students in each class, the diversity of each student at Highlander is celebrated. Each student works with teachers specially trained to help students, even those with learning differences, master reading and math. Together, students and teachers develop individualized learning plans that help students acquire the skills they need while learning about things that really interest them.
Through close involvement with the community and parents volunteering their time, Highlander Charter School is a place where kids come early, stay late, and build the educational foundation they need to succeed.
