Tacoma charter schools offer bus tour for prospective students, Jan. 12

Tacoma’s three charter public schools will open their doors to Tacoma’s families, Thursday, Jan. 12, in the first of several open houses designed to introduce public school options to interested parents.  The event mirrors the successful summer multi-school open house that allowed parents to tour schools before making a choice.

The tour is the first of several planned by WA Charters to meet rising interest from Tacoma parents and students curious about their public school options. Attendees will explore each school building, meet with school teachers and leaders, and hear from current charter families and students about their experience.
