Perspectives Charter Schools is a charter school network in Chicago, Illinois. The organization was founded by Kim Day and Diana Shulla-Cose, two teachers at Chicago's Dyett Middle School.

The school moved several times over the years and was expanded into a network of schools, serving both elementary and high school students. The five current Perspectives schools are as follows:
