About Premier Charter School

Our peace rallies have become a great tradition at our school. We come together as a community to celebrate our core ethical values of: Caring, Respect and Responsibility!

Welcome to Premier Charter School A State and National School of Character!

Premier Charter School was founded in 2000 under the name St. Louis Charter School until September 2013.  As one of the first charter schools in St. Louis, we have been a leader for 16 years in providing the children in the City of St. Louis with an excellent character-based and academic education.  Our distinction as a State and National School of Character was awarded by Character Education Partnership for our commitment to character education and the evidence that we have demonstrated that character education makes a dramatic positive difference in the lives of our students.  It is our passion to help grow not just great students but great people who are inspired to give back to their community through their own personal gifts.   

We currently serve 910 amazing students in grades K-8 and embrace the rich diversity that our families add to the experience of being a part of the PCS community.  We are proud to be able to say that we are truly improving the future of our city by serving students from every zip code in the City of St. Louis.  Our multicultural fair in the Spring is a day for celebrating the variety of cultures and backgrounds that make our PCS community so enriching.   

We believe children learn through a variety of educational "best practices." Our highly qualified staff are dedicated and challenged to put into practice the most effective strategies and techniques in order to help each child learn to their own highest capability.  We incorporate traditional teaching methods with hands-on project based learning, technology, service learning, peer groups, specialized support instruction and enrichment to give our students a broad spectrum of learning opportunities.  Our team captures the joy of teaching as we see our students achieve! 

Mission of Premier Charter School

The Premier Charter School will provide the children of the city of St. Louis an individualized education rich in academics and character, so the children we serve today can be the leaders of tomorrow!

Vision of Premier Charter School

We are building a school where anything is possible for each and every student. It is our vision to create an academic environment where each child is educated according to his and her needs in order to reach academic success. Through building a community that works together, to support each child holistically, we will build leaders that are strong in mind and in character. The students we serve today will be the spirit of St. Louis tomorrow.
