Back to School | Forest Charter School Truckee campus accommodates diverse student needs

Special to the Sun

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Forest Charter School is a WASC accredited public school that specializes in personalized learning, where the student, parents and a credentialed teacher work as a team to customize an educational plan for each student.

Since starting in 2002-03, Forest Charter School has grown to accommodate the diverse needs of students in grades K-12. Students have several academic options at the Truckee campus: home schooling/independent study, learning center classes for grades 7-12, offered Monday through Thursday, or a combination of the two.

Currently, there is a grade fifth- and sixth-grade site cooperative. Next year, the Truckee site will add a kindergarten/first-grade hybrid cooperative. In addition, students’ needs and interests can be met through tutoring, online courses, community and vendor provided classes, educational field trip and college courses.

One of the main reasons parents come to Forest Charter School is for support. A flexible schedule is offered to students so they may pursue the type of education that best fits their needs. Artists and athletes who have a rigorous schedule find personalized learning can benefit them. High-achieving students who want to learn at a faster pace or students who flourish with more personalized attention find a home at Forest Charter.

Forest Charter School is honored to be a part of the growth and success of high-quality public charter schools.

Personalized learning is the leading education delivery model to help guide students to be productive, successful citizens in order to meet the rapidly changing demands of the 21st century.
