Idaho’s 41 brick and mortar charter schools, and seven statewide virtual schools, serve more than 18,000 students, or about 6 percent of the state’s K-12 students. On the 2012-13 state report cards, 69 percent of charter schools received a four- or five-star rating. As a group, charter students outperform their district peers on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) in reading and math. The Idaho Charter School Network is committed to helping grow and expand the number of high-quality charter school seats available to Idaho’s children.
Our mission is to improve student achievement and expand choice among high quality public schools by advancing and supporting Idaho’s charter schools. We support efforts to improve the overall charter school movement both in Idaho and across the nation.
