Our Mission

At Sherman Thomas Charter School, from TK-12, our mission is to prepare a diverse student population for successful higher education by fostering critical moral thinking, equipping each child with skills and knowledge. We aim to develop habits of mind that cultivate self-motivated, competent, and lifelong learners. Embracing a STEM-focused approach, we integrate a problem-solving mindset into all areas of study, empowering students with control over their critical thinking development. Collaboration with peers, communication, and project management skills are emphasized, preparing students for a competitive job market. Recognizing the significance of technological advances, we ensure students become literate not only in traditional subjects but also in scientific, technological, and informational domains. Our goal is to create lifelong learners through a student-centered, situated/real-life, and authentic educational program design, enabling success in the 21st century and beyond.

Our Vision

The vision of the Sherman Thomas Charter School is to provide a rigorous and engaging education that prepares students for success in college, career, and life. Our inclusive and supportive learning community is committed to helping every student discover their unique talents and passions while providing them with the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to achieve their goals. Through innovative, shared, and personalized instruction, we empower our students to think critically, communicate effectively, and act ethically. Our teachers, staff, and families work together to create a safe and nurturing environment where students are inspired to take risks, persevere through challenges, and become lifelong learners. We believe in the power of education to positively transform lives and communities, and we are dedicated to creating a brighter future for all of our students.
