Altus Schools

Altus Schools share the philosophy of putting students first in education. Our schools focus on improving student achievement, creating prototypes for educational reform, and improving the quality of life for students, their families, and their communities. These nonprofit, State-funded, free public schools redefine how teachers teach and students learn!


Altus comes from the Latin word meaning “high, deep, noble or profound.” This name embodies the academic commitment and values-driven connection of all Altus Schools. Every Altus School is dedicated to creating environments in which students are able to accomplish their most important goal – to learn. Altus Schools are role models for excellence in public education. A hallmark of our schools is a commitment to continuous improvement and excellence through innovation, improvement and visionary leadership. The individuals who make up Altus Schools are deeply invested in offering a superior experience.  Using the Malcolm Baldrige approach to improvement has proven to be an excellent means of offering personalized instruction within a setting focused on quality.


With high expectations and the drive to go above and beyond for our students, our schools continue to be recognized on a local, national, and international level. From charter renewals to the opening of new schools, from Resource Center upgrades to new educational technology, from record breaking graduation numbers to prestigious recognitions, every day Altus Schools continue to advance student achievement in innovative ways.
