AAMA established the George I. Sanchez High School in 1973 and it was chartered by the Texas Education Agency as one of the state’s first charter schools in 1996.
Charter Schools are free public schools that have the flexibility to adapt to the educational needs of individual students. Charter schools vary in mission and model, serving a wide range of students, many with needs, beyond the one-size-fits all traditional public school. Often, charter schools provide a personalized learning environment that promotes greater student achievement. Although charter schools have some autonomy, they still must meet the rigorous academic standards dictated by the state for all public schools.
