Our approach is unlike any other.

As three schools under one charter, we serve nearly 1,000 students, who have the opportunity to attend a school that supports them from kindergarten all the way to and through college. This approach is resulting in strong outcomes for students — our alumni are graduating from college at rates more than three times the national average for students of the same demographic.
