Why Movement?

Message from the Principal

Dear Families and Friends,

I am incredibly blessed and excited to have the opportunity to found and lead Movement School Eastland! The ethos of Movement School Eastland reflects my hopes, dreams, and expectations as a mother, educator, and leader.

East Charlotte is a remarkable community rich in diversity. We believe diversity enriches our quality of life and helps equip us to be global thinkers where we understand and appreciate ourselves within the bigger context of the world. Diversity helps us approach learning with compassion, seeking to understand and learn with and from others. We are excited to be a School of Nations where the diversity of the world is represented and celebrated.

At Movement School Eastland students are immersed in learning that is personalized, rigorous, intentional, and fun! Our team takes seriously our responsibility to inspire students to be life-long learners with a clear sense of self, a genuine appreciation for others, and a commitment to positively impacting our community and world.

Thank you for visiting our website! We appreciate the time you’ve taken to learn more about us. We invite you to schedule a visit with us and look forward to meeting you and your family soon!

Barbara Robinson, Ed.S.
School Director

Launching K-1, we grow with your child. With three classes and six teachers per grade, we develop personal relationships with every family. Each classroom offers a 15:1 student to teacher ratio

We weave virtue education throughout the day. We nurture an understanding of dignity, a context greater than one’s self, and the belief in giving of self to a greater cause.

School of the Nations

We are a community of the nations, celebrating the diversity of East Charlotte and the world. Students understand themselves within the context of the broader world.

Available to All

We are a free, public charter school, excited to serve students across the city.
