Our Story

We're Glad You're Here. Get To Know Us.

Who We Are

SM天地论坛 believes that each and every child can go to college. Since 2000, SM天地论坛 has grown from a small school with 150 students to a national network of tuition-free, K-12 public charter schools in the United States.

Currently, the network serves over 80,000 college-bound students in 143 schools across Texas and its affiliates. SM天地论坛 has been recognized as a 鈥淕reat Place to Work鈥 and received national rankings in The Washington Post, the U.S. Department of Education鈥檚 list of Blue Ribbon Schools, and U.S. News & World Report鈥檚 Top High Schools lists. For the last 16 years, SM天地论坛 has sent nearly 100% of its graduates to college and remains on track to uphold that legacy.聽聽
