The mission of Extera Public Schools is to prepare students for 21st century life and careers. Grounded in a program built upon excellence, equity, and engagement, Extera grows students into trailblazers who are conscientious change agents for their communities and beyond.

Project-based and place-based activities, personalized learning, the meaningful use of 1-1 technology in the classroom, and support for the “whole child” are all key aspects of Extera’s learning environment. Extera was founded on the firm conviction that all children, regardless of background or socio-economic status are entitled to high quality public education.
