Learn more about Englewood on the Palisades Charter School.


Our Mission is to provide a nurturing, caring, child-centered, constructivist learning community; modeling skills and practices necessary for obtaining a high degree of achievement in an increasingly complex, interdependent global society. Our learning environment effectively addresses academic and social needs and builds self-esteem and self-worth. EPCS empowers all students with knowledge and flexibility to adapt and shape our ever-changing world. Key areas of on-going concentration are parent involvement, mastery/fluency of basic skills for critical thinking, and classrooms that are safe for risk taking. We model collaboration, interdependence, democracy, conflict resolution, negotiation, and mediation skills. Our culturally diverse population works in an environment in which everyone is valued.


Activities that were available this year to all our students included Basketball, Tennis, Volleyball, and Extreme Frisbee. All Activities occurred after regular school hours.


EPCS offers a Free Breakfast Program. This program allows our Students the opportunity to eat a nutritional breakfast, while satisfying the needs of our working Parents. Students in all Grades (K-8) are able to attend our After School Program. Also, Students are placed in groups by Grade Level and are supervised by Teachers from the School. They work on, and complete, their Homework with the support of the Teacher present, and then relax either in the Gym, watching a Movie, Playing Music, or Simply Talking and Playing Games. The Program is run by the Office and Parents pay a nominal fee for Attendance.


Each year the school provides three On-Site Professional Development Workshops. In addition, Teachers are required to attend an Out-Of-House Workshop related to their Discipline, which is funded by the School in order to support their Individual Needs and Professional Growth.


EPCS provides a number of Support Services to all Students. 1) ELL Pull-Out for Students for whom English is a second language. 2) Special Education Services, both Pull-Out and Push-In. 3) Referral Services for Students for whom Special Education may be required. 4) Speech Therapy 5) Occupational Therapy 6) Teachers also provide Tutoring on an Individual Case basis as needed.


Nutritious School Breakfast and Lunch are made available, daily, to all Students and Faculty. All Students also attend Physical Education and Health classes each week. Screenings are done yearly for Height, Weight, Hearing, Sight, Blood Pressure, Heart, Lung, Ear, Nose, Throat, and Scoliosis.

School safety

In addition to running monthly Fire, Active Shooter, Lockdown, and Shelter-In-Place Drills our Students' Safety is maintained with the help of two Security Guards, and frequent lessons on safety, in School, at Home, and on the Internet. Anti-Bullying assemblies and programs are also provided to all students every year. Security Cameras are also strategically placed throughout the school.
