Anansi’s intent for its students:

At Anansi Charter School, we are dedicated to providing students with an innovative, empowering and rigorous learning environment that nurtures the whole child. ACS hopes to inspire each student to reach beyond his or her self to achieve his or her full potential.


ACS students will learn to demonstrate respect for themselves and others; through their educational experiences at the Anansi Charter School, they will learn to make appropriate choices and accept responsibility for their own actions. Students will develop and maintain skills in the area of self-discipline and self-management. Students will become knowledgeable of the norms, expectations, and social needs of the school community, and will develop an intrinsic sense of social responsibility toward its school community. Consequently, students will take ownership of their “school community” and their education available to them.

“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.”
