The mission of the ASTEC Board of Directors, administration, teachers, staff is to prepare students for succes in college, career and life.
As a non-sectarian school of choice, ASTEC Charter Schools offer an unparalleled education in a safe and supportive environment, where rigor and student time-on-task are paramount.
Administrators, teacher, students and parents are expected to do whatever it takes to achieve grade level or above test results. However, ASTEC teachers do not “teach to the tests.” We believe classroom instruction and experience mush be relevant, that students must master the art of speaking in public and be technology literate, all the while practicing mutual respect and a strong work ethic.
The opportunities that result from an education that is tailored to meet the needs of our students are far-reaching and life-long. ASTEC gives families the opportunity to select a school most suitable for the well-being of their children. Teachers choose ASTEC because they are committed to creating a lasting impact in the lives of students.
While charter schools must adhere to the same major laws and regulations as all other public schools, ASTEC has the freedom from the red tape that often diverts a school’s energy and resources away from educational excellence. Instead of constantly jumping through procedural hoops, ASTEC has the freedom to focus on setting and reaching high academic standards for their students.
Unlike traditional schools, if a charter school does not perform up to the established standards, it will be closed. ASTEC academic, fiscal and management standards are exceptional. We are proud to be Oklahoma’s first start-up charter school, consistently up to the challenge that such rigorous standards require.
The ASTEC Experience builds and expectation of success that follows our students to higher learning, following graduation.
