Founder’s Vision

As a tribute to the life of Russell Byers, the columnist’s family—Laurada Byers, his widow; his daughter, Alison Byers; and his son Russell Byers, Jr.—have founded a charter school that honors his lifelong commitment to civic responsibility, community service and academic excellence.

The Russell Byers Charter School provides a rigorous education that cultivates self-assurance, love of fresh ideas, and especially, a sense of joy. Our students are creative problem solvers, powerful communicators, and knowledgeable and responsible citizens. They will develop the character and gain the academic skills to truly make their lives and their world better.
