E3 Rochester recruits charter schools and charter leaders who have proven results in communities like Rochester – where there is a high concentration of poverty. We look for the ability to replicate those models here. It’s one of the ways we ensure quality in the schools we recruit.
So far we have opened two schools—PUC Achieve Charter School and Vertus High School, a year-round, high school for young men. Our plan is to create 6,000 new, permanent charter school seats that will serve about 1/3rd of city students
