关于我们

关于那

创始人和执行董事的愿景, 埃尔希Urueta波洛克, is to provide a high quality education where ALL 学者 are prepared to go to and graduate from college. 在这一愿景和对东塔尔萨社区的承诺的指导下. Urueta Pollock submitted a charter school application designed to accomplish that. 9月2日, 2014, the Tulsa Public 学校s (TPS) school board voted to approve the THA Charter 学校.  

8月4日, 2015, Tulsa Honor Academy Charter 学校 opened its doors for the first time to our founding class of Nerdy Knights. 我们的使命是让所有的学者都具备学术技能, 内容知识, 以及大学毕业和成功所必需的道德品质.  通过THA全体员工的辛勤工作, 学者, 和家庭, 那已经, 无论是在规模上还是在学术成就上, 成为俄克拉荷马州最好的中学和塔尔萨最好的特许学校. 总部在东塔尔萨, THA’s 学者 are selected randomly each year during the lottery process due to the limited number of seats we have available. 在2018年秋天, THA中学达到满员, 从一年级五年级的92名学生成长起来, 为超过400名5至8年级的学生提供全面招生服务. 然而,增长并没有止步于此.

鉴于家庭需求, THA applied for an expansion to the charter school so that we could continue serving 学者 through grade 12. We submitted the expansion and the TPS 学校 Board approved it on December 3, 2018. 2019年8月6日,THA向第一批新生敞开大门.

On March 12, 2020, THA purchased a facility where the THA 高中 will permanently be housed. Construction on the facility began in April of 2020 and is nearing Phase I completion.

Today, Tulsa Honor Academy Charter 学校 serves more than 680 学者 in grades 5-10. THA采用了缓慢增长的模式, which allows a grade level to be added each year as 学者 continue their 中学 and 高中 educations. THA will reach full growth in the 2022-2023 school year, offering grades 5 through 12.

什么是特许学校?

Charter schools are independently-operated public schools that have the freedom to design classrooms that meet their students’ needs. All charter schools operate under a contract with a charter school authorizer or sponsor – usually a nonprofit organization, 政府机构, or university – that holds them accountable to the high standards outlined in their “charter.在俄克拉荷马州, charter schools can be authorized by four different types of entities: the local district where the school resides, 一个州立大学, 一个部落, 或者技术学校. 爱游戏娱乐登录注册由当地的塔尔萨公立学校授权.

Charter schools are exempt from local operations and management regulations since charters must create their own operations and management guidelines. This management shift makes it so that charter schools can have greater flexibility in school design, 确保他们满足他们的学者的需求. Thus, while charter schools have more autonomy, they exchange that for greater accountability.

然而, charter schools must adhere to state and federal regulations related to all public schools — for example, charter schools cannot charge tuition or be affiliated with a religious institution. Charter schools must take all the state and federal assessments and must serve all 学者, 包括有特殊需要的学者.

The reasons that parents choose charter schools for their children are just as unique as the students themselves. 他们选择特许学校是因为实力雄厚, 专门的老师, 因为学校的重点符合他们孩子的需求, or simply because their child was struggling in their assigned public school and needed to try something new. 特许学校为家庭提供公共教育的选择, 让父母在孩子的教育中发挥更积极的作用.
