The History of Enterprise Charter School

Enterprise Charter School is the only charter school authorized by its local school district in New York State.  The school opened as a K-8 school in 2003 with 405 students.  The school has been renewed four times, with a three year renewal in 2008, a two-year renewal in 2010, and a one-year renewal in 2013, a two-year renewal in 2014, and most recently, Enterprise was renewed for a three year renewal in February of 2016.

As of late, Enterprise has shifted its focus towards instruction aligned to the common core, with students engaging in Readers and Writer's Workshop, as well as using the NYS Math Modules for math instruction.  Students also participate in Foreign Language, Art, Performing Arts, Computers, and Physical Education classes in grades K-8.  Enterprise has also been working with students starting in 2013-2014 using the Leader in Me program, based on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.

The school has a dedicated and qualified faculty and staff of over 40 teachers and teacher assistants in addition to a leadership team and support staff that works diligently to educate and build the character of students so that they may grow up to become contributing members of their communities and society as a whole.  Our school's mission is to "engage young minds through projects and partnerships."
