  • 1 principal that decided these students deserved more, and was willing to put her soul into this school, and now sees the beneficiaries each day excited to learn.
  • 40+ teachers that care and understand the problems that these kids struggle with, and know there’s much more to education than math and language lessons.
  • 300+ students that are willing to take charge of their future, that want to care about issues much greater to their community, and that understand one another.
  • 95% graduation rate
  • 40% college-acceptance rate
