High School Overview
DREAM Charter High School prepares students to graduate college-ready, with strong skills in reading, writing, and speaking.
We currently serve 200 scholars in ninth and tenth grade. We will add one grade each year until we reach capacity to serve scholars in grades 9-12.
The high school curriculum prepares students for college and beyond by developing critical literacy skills needed for their success as professionals and as agents of social change.
Throughout their time at DREAM, students assemble a portfolio of college level performance assessments. This portfolio is representative of students’ ability to learn, apply, and reflect across all disciplines. In their Defenses of Learning, 10th and 12th grade students present and defend their portfolio as a capstone activity and rite of passage. A successful Defense of Learning signals to graduates, families, and the school community that the student is well prepared for the rigor of college and challenges that lie beyond.

When Xiomara first came to DREAM Charter High School, she was nervous to go to school with a new group of people. She wasn’t sure if she would be able to make new friends. But right from the start, she found herself in a supportive community. When she didn’t understand something in class, her classmates took the time to help her out.
Now, Xiomara really enjoys her science class. Her favorite experiment in class is mixing sugar, yeast, and water in a soda bottle and measuring how much gas the mixture creates. She loves seeing how each ingredient impacts the result. Xiomara wants to keep studying science in college to achieve her dream of becoming a surgeon.
