Iftin Charter School is a tuition-free public school with an open enrollment system that accepts children from anywhere in San Diego County. Our school runs independently from the San Diego Unified School District, tailoring to our own program and community needs. This provides an increase in educational choice for our administration, classroom teachers, policymakers, and parents

Iftin Charter is non-sectarian in all its programs, admission policies, employment practices and operations. Iftin does not discriminate against any pupil on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender or disability.
