"The strength of the team is each individual member...the strength of each member is the team."

Coach Phil Jackson, Chicago Bulls

Your child's individual success will be cultivated and magnified through his or her participation within a wider community of learners.

The School Lane Charter School is a K-8 public school of choice that brings together teachers, parents and students as active participants in a safe environment that nurtures children and prepares them for lifelong success.

We offer a unique public school alternative for families who demand high expectations for all students and support for each student as an individual with specific gifts and needs. From day one, students gain confidence to explore new things, discover their strengths, and constructively learn from their mistakes.

How We Teach

School Lane empowers teachers to differentiate instruction through methods that correspond best with the learning styles of individual students.

  • Relationship-based learning: School Lane teachers stay with their students for two years, developing a strong teacher-student bond that by its nature creates a stronger hunger for learning within each child.
  • Small class sizes: The average classroom has 22 students and every classroom has a second teacher providing extra support for part of every day. Small class sizes and added teaching support ensures each child receives the individual attention he or she needs to excel.
  • Longer learning opportunities: Our school day is one hour longer and our school year has ten additional teaching days to provide more time for learning. This leads to deeper mastery of academics along with greater exposure to enrichment activities.

What We Teach

School Lane provides everything parents expect from a high-quality public education, with distinct additional programs.

  • A smart start: Foreign language and computer lessons begin in our full-day Kindergarten classes.
  • Strong bilingual foundation: By eighth grade, students are learning the equivalent of high school Spanish.
  • Strength in technology: With school-wide Internet access, wireless laptop computers, and Kindles for our upper grade levels, technology is easily integrated with traditional learning methods.
  • Diversity in learning: Multi-cultural perspectives and global awareness are emphasized across the curriculum.

Who We Are

School Lane is an inclusive community of educators and families from diverse backgrounds, melding together a unique learning environment that broadens students' perspectives, preparing them to succeed in our ever-changing world.

  • Most of our students reside in Bensalem. Others live elsewhere in Bucks County and the Greater Philadelphia area.
  • Our student body is ethnically diverse
  • We share a firm belief that schools succeed when teachers, parents and students have more choices and opportunities, coupled with greater personal responsibility and accountability.
