Ombudsman Educational Services opened its first Ombudsman Arizona charter school in Phoenix in 1996. Since then, we have grown to seven schools in Phoenix and Tucson – and helped more than 2,500 students graduate from high school.
Students participate in one-on-one and small group learning and are supported by counselors, social workers and others who can help them reach their full potential. Students can enroll in any location that’s convenient, and there’s no cost at attend.
Ombudsman is accredited by Cognia, an international education accrediting organization, and is sponsored by the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools.
Ombudsman is part of ChanceLight® Behavioral Health, Therapy and Education, the nation’s leading provider of behavioral health, therapy and education solutions for children and young adults. ChanceLight works with more than 14,000 clients and students nationwide.
