Mission & Vision

To be a dynamic learning community where students become life-long learners, develop self-knowledge, and are challenged to excel.

The mission of the Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School (ANCS) is to use the principles of the Coalition of Essential Schools to:

  • BUILD an empowered and inclusive community of students, parents, and educators
  • ENGAGE the whole child—intellectually, social-emotionally, and physically
  • HELP all students to know themselves and to be known well by their community
  • CHALLENGE each student to take an active role as an informed citizen in a global society
  • COLLABORATE with the larger community to advocate for student-centered schools
