Increase High School Graduates
Children enter kindergarten with the appropriate academic and social foundation; middle school students enter high school on track to graduate.
Help 50,000 underperforming middle school kids enter high school ready to succeed
To achieve this, we are focused on parental engagement, wraparound supports inside the school and academic reinforcement for at-risk children and youth. Ultimately, we will ensure children ages 0-5 enter kindergarten ready to learn, and middle school students transition into 9th grade prepared to succeed in high school, through two key interventions:
- High-quality preschool and home visiting services
- Middle schools that serve as a community hub through a range of coordinated, on-site programs reinforcing academic achievement, including: mentoring, tutoring, theatre and sports
7,500 middle school students ready for high school success; 92% of these students were promoted to the next grade level.
10,177 kids ready for kindergarten
95% of families of preschool children and 84% of families of middle school children reported feeling more confident to support their children’s learning at home.
