Mark West Charter School fosters a school
culture where every member of the school
community is provided powerful instruction in
21st Century skills and common core
academics. Progress will be measured by
District Benchmarks, formative and statewide
assessments, as well as performance tasks.
We will use technology, project based learning,
and a caring, dedicated staff to meet the
social-emotional and academic needs of each
and every student. We will provide
differentiation during the instructional day to
ensure students get the level of support they
need to succeed. Students will participate in
community service projects to find a connection to their surroundings and ways they can become active members in their community.
