White Pine Charter School (grades K-8) utilizes a Core Knowledge curriculum framework taught in a warm and dynamic environment.  We believe that effective learning is hands-on where students are taught to be critical thinkers and life-long learners.   If you are seeking a challenging, yet intimate and nurturing environment for your child, call or visit White Pine Charter School today at 208.522.4432.

Calendar Draft for School Year 2016-2017


Wendy's night for TSA

When: Wednesday, Feb 10, 2016

Time: 5pm-9pm

Where: Hitt and Sunnyside

WPCS attendees and parents really supported our efforts last fall quite well.  This up-coming event will help push us even closer to funding the WPCS Technology Student Association (TSA) to attend 2016 state TSA conference in Twin Falls next month.  Finalization of students making the trip is nearly complete.  They have the opportunity to compete in nearly forty different competitions at the Middle School level.  Our endeavor is to repeat as second overall chapter in the state or, even do better.


TSA Yard Sale

When: Saturday, Feb 20, 2016

Where: WPCS Gym

Time: 8am-2pm

Contributions or purchases or both are worthy assistance to this endeavor.

This is a great opportunity to do some early spring cleaning and repurposing of various wardrobe items.  Early items include a credenza, books, hand tools, and furniture pieces.

The TSA program with Exploratory STEAM are appreciative of the support WPCS families provide.


Patriotic Music Program

Grades 1st-7th will be having a Patriotic Music Program on Thursday, Feb 25, 2016. It will be at the Hillcrest High School Auditorium. The program will start at 7:00pm. All are welcome to come enjoy this wonderful evening.



We still have openings for students in our middle school.  Let your friends know and have them give us a call or stop by the school.  We would love to give tours and tell the White Pine story!

2015-2016 School Calendar
Early Release Wednesday
All students will be released each Wednesday at 1:30.  We encourage parents and guardians to schedule outside appointments after school on Wednesday. When White Pine Charter School was first established, Wednesday afternoons were dedicated to professional development for all staff.  We feel that teacher collaboration and staff development are critcal to student success and we will utilize Wednesday afternoons to foster this environment for staff.
