    I worked at Imagine Schools full-time


    Tight community, fun people, learn a different perspective on education and how it affects the country


    Honestly, I can't think of any cons. This was a great place to be at. I hope to come back here one day.

New solutions in education is not a stretch of the imagination for Imagine Schools. The company is one of the largest US operators of charter schools for students in kindergarten through 12th grade in the US. Imagine Schools educates more than 40,000 students at some 75 public charter schools in about a dozen states and Washington, DC. Imagine Schools was established in 2003 by CEO Dennis Bakke and his wife Eileen through a buyout of Chancellor Beacon Academies, the second-largest school management group in the US (behind Edison).
