Welcome to DIRT Charter School
The Developing Innovative Rural Thinking (DIRT) Charter School is a proposed charter school for grades K-8 that plans to open its doors in September 2016. DIRT Charter School will be the first rural charter school in New York State. The school will integrate environmental science throughout their curriculum. Students will use the Orange County environment as their laboratory for hands on, interdisciplinary projects which will serve as jumping off points for other subjects such as English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Foreign Language, Art and Music. DIRT Charter School also plans to have extensive after school programs that meet students' interests.
