Pillar 1: Academic Excellence

Providing a world-class academic experience for our students is the most important component of ensuring they are ready for the world. We believe we must support our students in developing the foundational knowledge and necessary skills to graduate and succeed in college and the workforce, and we must also offer them opportunities and tools needed to grow into excited and inspired lifelong learners. Moreover, it is our imperative to ensure that we achieve this for ALL students, and that students who have historically been underserved by the public education system will receive the instructional supports and services they need to thrive in our schools. This pillar represents our dedicated focus on building a system where exceptional teaching can be found in every classroom, and knowledgeable, critical thinkers can be found in every seat.
