Phoenix School was founded in 1981 by a group of concerned educators in order to provide students with a safe and engaging environment in which they could learn and grow.
According to ancient Greek mythology, the phoenix has a 500 year lifecycle. Near the end of its life, it builds a nest of twigs and proceeds to ignite both the nest and itself. Reduced to ashes, a new phoenix arises, reborn to live again. The phoenix’s ability to be born again renewed from its own ashes implies that it is immortal and articulates a story of perseverance and growth. At Phoenix Charter School we believe that every student has the ability to overcome challenging circumstances to arise as a newer better version of the past self and we work diligently to provide each student with such opportunities.
