A charter school is a school that receives government funding, but operates independently of the established state school system. Historically, Tucson has been a "charter school friendly city" so there are many charter schools in the metro area and in the surrounding suburbs.

Since charter schools receive government funding, they must adhere to specific guidelines instituted by the Department of Education.

Many of the charter schools in Tucson have stellar academic reputations (beating out traditional public schools in test scores and extracurriculars), while other charter schools have a poor reputation. It is important to take a school tour, to ask for recommendations, and to do your own research before making an enrollment choice for your child.

Because charter schools are public schools in a different form, students attend free and do not pay tuition.

There are too many charter schools in Tucson to list. The most notable, however, are BASIS Tucson and Leman Academy.

If you plan to send your child to a public school, you can call, email, or visit your district office to determine school placement. In most cases, your child will be assigned to the neighborhood school that is the closest to your home. Some districts do, however, offer open enrollment where you are able to choose a school within the district limits. Similarly, you may be able to "open enroll" at a school outside of your designated district in certain circumstances.

You can search by zip code on the Arizona Department of Education website to find the public and charter schools that are closest to you.
