Options Public Charter School Campus

Options PCS is an open-enrollment public charter school in Northeast D.C., serving students in grades 6 through 12. Options provides individualized instruction and targeted support to help all students earn the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in college and post-secondary careers.

Options PCS was founded in 1996 with the mission of providing a high quality, unique educational experience for all students, including those students most at risk of dropping out because they need additional social and academic support or have exceptionalities requiring intensive special education services.

In Fall 2014, Options reopened under the leadership of a new management team that is committed to maintaining rigor and accountability in school operations, while also providing rich support services and targeted academic interventions for all students.
