Holistic Approach, Proven Model

Purpose Built Schools follows a proven instructional model developed by Drew Charter School in Atlanta. With a combination of motivated teachers, a robust instructional approach using STEAM as a thematic focus, and comprehensive community support programs, Purpose Built Schools is creating a culture that will foster academic success.

Our Approach

Purpose Built Schools Atlanta: Innovation in Focus

Purpose Built Schools has a first-of-its-kind partnership with Atlanta Public Schools (APS) that is designed to turn around some of the system’s most troubled schools. We operate a K–12 feeder pattern of traditional public schools, but with the flexibility and full autonomy of a charter school. This unique approach allows us to combine the best of both traditional neighborhood schools and charter programs.

The Carver Cluster

The Carver Cluster offers a Pre-K to 12th grade feeder pattern for more than 2,000 students. The four schools are:

  • Thomasville Heights Elementary
  • Slater Elementary
  • Price Middle School
  • The STEAM Academy at Carver High School (note that this excludes the Early College at Carver High School)
