Mission
Using innovative education practices as a catalyst for social change Highlander Charter School is working to ensure that all children have the educational opportunities and support they need to achieve their full potential.

Highlander Charter School is the first independent public charter school in Rhode Island. The lower school is located in an historic mill building in one of the poorest sections of Providence that was renovated as a state of the art arts and education center in 2007. The upper school is located in a former Catholic school building in Warren that is surrounded by 42 acres of land providing opportunities for learning beyond the walls of the classroom.

Since opening, Highlander has increased enrollment to its current 592 students (632 at full enrollment) in grades pre-k through 12. The school provides personalized education that engages students and is relevant to their interests and experiences. Highlander is a responsive school — which means that we believe that having high standards and conduct are key to helping students meet high academic expectations. To that end, there are certain practices and rituals that we have adopted to create the kind of learning community where everyone is valued.
