About Imagine Schools
“Developing Character, Enriching Minds”
Imagine Schools’ vision is for every student to reach his or her full potential and discover the pathways for life-long success.
Founded in 2004, Imagine Schools is a national non-proﬁt family of public charter schools preparing students for lives of leadership, accomplishment and exemplary character. Our non-proﬁt network consists of 60 public charter campuses educating more than 30,000 students in 9 states and the Dis-trict of Columbia. Imagine Schools partners with parents and guardians to educate their children, pro-viding high quality schools that develop the character and enrich the minds of the students we are privileged to serve.
While charter schools have ﬂexibility in choosing curriculum and developing effective teaching practic-es, Imagine charter schools are public schools. This means our schools must meet the same academic performance standards as traditional district schools, as required by federal and state laws. Local gov-erning boards provide oversight and accountability, partnering with Imagine Schools for comprehen-sive educational and operational expertise, support and programmatic variety.
As members of the Imagine Schools’ network, our schools share a common culture based on Shared Values and Measures of Excellence. These elements are foundational to our approach and belief in edu-cating the whole child. While each school is uniquely tailored both in curriculum and structure, the integration of character development with academics sets Imagine campuses apart.
Our work is guided by three shared values: Justice, Integrity, and Fun. We apply “Joy at Work,” a unique organizational culture that puts teachers and school leaders squarely responsible for the decisions affecting the schools and students we serve.
We are privileged to partner with parents, communities, and local governing boards to deliver a high quality education that prepares students for life-long success.
MEASURES OF EXCELLENCE
A highly effective school results from a rigorous academic program in a culture of trust and high expectations, led by a visionary instructional leadership team and imple-mented by talented, dedicated teachers. At Imagine Schools we monitor and evaluate our school performance based on Measures of Excellence:
Parent Choice is a key indicator of Imagine Schools’ performance. Parents choose an Imagine school because the school provides the academic quality, character development, and nurturing environment they want for their children. Imagine Schools’ educators provide a positive learning environment by working closely with parents and guardians to fulfill a collaborative responsibility for the academic and personal growth of their children.
Shared values are at the heart of who we want to be. Three particular values guide our work as an organization: Justice. Integrity. Fun.
Justice gives to each person what he or she deserves and what is appro-priate. Justice requires doing all in our power to ensure that every Imagine student has access to an outstanding education. Driven by the unique abilities and needs of each student, Imagine educators design instruction to equip all students to become successful learners. We align goals for each student and adult in our schools with what they need and deserve. Integrity means wholeness, or how things ﬁt together. Integrity drives us to live and model consistent ethics inside and outside the school. Integrity requires responsibility and accountability. It means every aspect of what and how we teach is done with rigor and ﬁdelity. We hold ourselves indi-vidually and collectively accountable for strong academic outcomes, with each individual fulﬁlling his or her responsibility so that all students can succeed.
Fun means cultivating a Joy at Work environment in every school we op-erate. In our schools, each person has the opportunity to use his or her unique talents and experience to make important decisions contributing to the success of the school. Joy at Work combines integrity and justice with accountability for our decisions in order to achieve outstanding results for students and families.
