Coming to Russell Byers Charter School from a public school means “I don’t have to fight anymore.” – 6th grader
Every child deserves a high-quality education. Please help us continue to provide exceptional learning through art, music, museum visits, and much more. Only through the generosity of donors can we provide our students with the broad range of opportunities developed by, Outward Bound, the famed outdoor educational program. Our students are afforded the unique opportunity to participate in hands-on learning, teamwork, and community service.
These “extras” cannot happen with the basic School District stipend — They can only happen with your support of the Byerschool Foundation. To date, the foundation has provided chrome books for all middle school students, new Smart Boards for interactive learning, ballroom dance lessons, and a complete bell choir.
“You can really bond with your teachers here.” – 7th grader
The Russell Byers Charter School provides students roots in a safe, stimulating environment with a rigorous academic education. Our students become powerful communicators, creative problem solvers and compassionate, engaged citizen by taking responsibility for their learning. Our new middle school gives us the opportunity to strengthen our students and better prepare them to move on to high school. We truly believe our students are Ours for Life, and we work with families and students to support their move to a secondary school of their choice, helping to secure scholarship funding and any needed academic support. The Russell Byers student develops wings to succeed in selective schools and embraces a love for learning.
Your support helps us keep our promise to give all of our students “roots to grow and wings to fly.”
