About RePublic Schools:
RePublic leads public charter schools that reimagine what's possible in public education. In 2013, our two founding schools -- Nashville Prep and Liberty Collegiate Academy -- were the first two charter schools in Tennessee history to reach the top 5% of public schools in the state for growth and performance. Last fall, RePublic launched the Nashville Academy of Computer Science, where scholars learn to code starting in 5th grade. This year, we will open Reimagine Prep -- the first public charter school in Mississippi.
