At Logos Public Charter School, our purpose is to graduate critical thinkers who can effectively communicate in the 21st century. Logos facilitates a personalized learning program through a collaborative partnership between the student, family, teacher, school, and community.
We support and guide parents as they homeschool their children. We are a quality school of choice for any student who would benefit from an individualized education. Our personalized educational program supports its students by offering educational resources, including an assigned Educational Specialist (ES), a licensed or registered teacher, who will meet with each student individually on a weekly basis, access to a team of lead instructors and tutors, field trips, academic competitions, and many other school activities. Parental partnership is a cornerstone of our educational program.
Explore our website to learn more about our unique school. We are excited to explain our program and meet you! Homeschooling with support is not new in America. Look at the pictures on dollar bills and coins. They all have pictures of people who homeschooled with support.
“Doing the ordinary extraordinarily well.”
Parents, students and the Educational Specialist (ES) collaborate in selecting instructional materials customized to the student’s Personalized Learning Plan. All instructional materials must be non-sectarian. Non-consumable materials must be returned as courses are completed, at the end of the school year, or upon withdrawal from the school.
Personalized learning is the tailoring of instruction with multiple curriculum options in learning environments customized to the unique needs of individual learners.
Many students choose from a variety of optional on-site classes, including music, art, writing, science, math, history, and more. Qualified instructors make the interactive activities fun and educational!

Open campus policy
Logos staff supervises students on the Logos campus (building and property) where classes and tutoring are taking place. With an open campus policy, students are allowed to leave and return to campus at will. The Logos staff does not monitor or supervise students who leave campus. Please discuss this with your family and review your expectations.
One great way to enrich your student’s education is to enroll in ongoing classes in our community. You can partner with local businesses, non-profit organizations, and qualified individuals who have talents and passions in a plethora of areas.
Vendors working in conjunction with Logos provide another “classroom without walls.”
We aim to build community among our students and families by coordinating a wide variety of activities for all Logos stakeholders to participate in.
- Field trips to local attractions and businesses
- Seasonal family parties
- Community service projects benefiting our neighbors and the environment
- Academic competitions such as Spelling Contest, Battle of the Books, Geography Bee, a research-based scavenger hunt, and writing contests
- Student showcase events such as Science Fair an Talent Show

School Health Services
Health Services in the Medford School District are coordinated and supervised by Registered Nurses (RNs). Services provided through a school-health program include identification of health concerns, nursing assessments, and the development of individual health care plans to ensure a safe school experience for students with health related concerns.
Our mission is to support the health and well-being of students because healthy students learn better. We help families and school staff by providing health education and guidance. We promote student access to primary health care and community services in order to foster healthy behaviors and promote preventative care. We also support the mission of the Office of Student Services by providing nursing care to students eligible for special education or Section 504.
Multi-Tiered Instruction (MTI) and Response to Intervention (RTI)
Multi-Tiered Instruction (MTI) and Response to Intervention (RTI) are often used interchangeably. MTI, as a school organizational model, is a system of organizing general education curriculum and instruction to meet the needs of all students. This system of support integrates core instruction and all supplemental and intervention programs in order to use resources more efficiently.
All students receive high quality, research-based instruction by qualified staff in their general education classroom.
Instruction is delivered using a multi-tier model of increasingly intense student interventions. Differentiated curriculum and instruction is in all classrooms. General education instructors and staff assume an active role in the assessment of the student’s progress in core and supplemental curriculum.
Schools conduct universal screening of academics and behavior three times per year.
All schools have a common framework and participate in similar procedures and processes that are well defined and allow for some variation between schools.
Grade and School Level Teams use a problem-solving model to develop and evaluate core instruction and intervention programs.
For Students At-Risk
School staff implements specific, research-based interventions to address the student’s difficulties.
Continuous and regular progress monitoring of the student’s performance occurs.
Interventions may be delivered by someone other than the classroom teacher.
Interventions are varied in duration, frequency and time.
School staff will use progress monitoring data and decision rules to determine the effectiveness of the interventions and to make modifications, as needed.
