"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."
John Quincy Adams
School Lane Leadership
Karen Schade, Principal and CEO
Prior to joining School Lane, Mrs. Schade worked in both private and traditional public schools. Her passion for education and support for tuition-free public school choice led her to seek a career as a charter school administrator. From the onset, Mrs. Schade was sold on School Lane's philosophy that every child is gifted and that when students realize their giftedness and use it to the fullest potential, nothing can stop them from becoming high achievers.
A mother of two college-age children, Mrs. Schade enjoys reading in her spare time. Prior to launching her career in education, she owned a floral business and arranging flowers is now a hobby she continues to enjoy.
