I think keystone is an excellent school very focused on academic excellence.

Having visited smh, it looks like a nice school, but i have concerns about the culture of wealth that appears to be there. I'd consider myself upper middle class, and have those concerns, so there might be an even bigger culture shock for your brother.

I think harmony probably offers more than your average public high school- he may not be such an outlier there, but there are also some other really top-notch charter schools that are planning to open in SA as well, so keep an eye on these.(great hearts, basis, etc.)

Bid to expand charter schools could boost programs' quality - Houston Chronicle

Congrats on stanford, and good luck.

Default Great Hearts Academies

If you are interested in learning more about Great Hearts Academies, there will be an informational open house event on Thursday, October 18th. More info below:

Great Hearts Academies Informational Event

Thursday, October 18, 2012
6:30 - 8:00 PM
The Pearl Studio
200 E Grayson St.
San Antonio, TX 78215

Register to attend this event at: http://ghsanantonio.eventbrite.com


Great Hearts Academies, a leading charter school management organization based in Arizona, recently submitted to the Texas State Board of Education a charter application to open network of classical, liberal arts charter schools in San Antonio, Texas.

If approved by the State Board of Education in November, Great Hearts Academies could, over the next several years, expand to open five or more tuition-free, classical K-12 schools located throughout San Antonio.

The first school would open in 2013 or 2014 and serve up to grades K-9, depending on demand, and would grow one grade level each year until it becomes a K-12 school. The location of each academy will be determined by parent interest and the availability of facilities. As with all charter schools, Great Hearts does not charge tuition and would be open to all students with admissions determined through a lottery process.

Please help spread the word to your friends, coworkers, and family members and encourage them to sign up for one of our open house events. We need to be able to demonstrate that the families of San Antonio desire the tuition-free, open enrollment, classical, liberal arts education that Great Hearts can provide. As we continue the charter application process, ongoing parent attendance and interest at our neighborhood Informational Events is incredibly important.
