Mission, Vision, and Strategic Plan


Drew is an exemplary, innovative education community that empowers all students to achieve their full potential.


Drew Charter School students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and passion to create positive change in the world.


Drew Charter School serves as a key component of the cradle-to-college pipeline within the holistic East Lake neighborhood revitalization. Appreciating our unique status as a mixed-income school, Drew Charter School’s primary purpose is to provide an excellent education to all children living in the Villages of East Lake so that each student reaches his or her full potential and is launched on a pathway to health, impact and prosperity.


Drew Charter School’s approach is based on the belief that every child has gifts and talents that must be discovered and nurtured. All students are consistently encouraged to strive to do their best so they may reach their highest potential. A Drew education is one that supports strong intellectual, physical, social, and emotional growth.
