About our Faculty

PA Leadership Charter School has assembled highly skilled groups of academic administrators and grade level teams. Each team has teachers across all subject areas, special education teachers, guidance counselors, academic advisors and support staff.

Teachers at PALCS are certified, highly qualified, have life experiences in their area of expertise, and many have years of teaching experience. Our teachers partner with the parent to provide thorough accountability for each student. 45% of the PALCS Faculty and Leadership have been a part of the PALCS community for 5 or more years. This leads to great engagement with our families and provides a truly relationship-focused approach to education.
