As a chartered public school (free and nonprofit), TPS faces the on-going financial burden of both the lease and maintenance our own facility, as well as all facilities costs. Our situation
is unique: unlike other public schools in our community, we must assume
responsibility for close to $90,000 in annual rental costs for our beautiful
school building. This is in addition to a mortgage payment on 2.2 million in state-of-the-art
building improvements. Unlike other free schools in our community, we do not
receive any state funding for building costs, including the lease, improvements,
Every budgetary dollar we put toward facilities and overhead is
a dollar we are unable to spend on our programs of educational excellence. Additionally,
although we receive only 67 cents for every state dollar received by the local
public school corporation, we remain dedicated to providing compensation and
benefits to our talented and visionary faculty and staff at the same level as their traditional public school peers.
Every dollar contributed to our school's annual fund goes directly to our educational and social justice programs.
