Challenge School PTCO

WELCOME!  We're glad you're here. 

The Challenge School Parent-Teacher-Community Organization (PTCO) is made up of parents and guardians of our students, faculty, administration, and interested members of the community.

Our mission is to support teachers and staff, as well as inspire, empower and challenge motivated students who are academically advanced or gifted by building community and raising money

Our fundraising supports Challenge School by providing instructional resources and five full-time paraprofessionals (teacher aides) to enhance the educational experience of our kids. Thank you for your partnership and support!
