You are invited to be inspired by some stellar teaching and learning in a school serving 5-8 graders in Atlanta's West End neighborhood. Share a brief part of your morning with us at a tour of KIPP STRIVE Academy, one of the highest achieving middle schools in Metro Atlanta. KIPP's unique model of extended school days, a balanced focus on academics and character development and rigorous development of teachers and leaders have led to significant results (see CRCT results here).
The remarkable results at KIPP STRIVE has drawn national attention as well, with CNN recently profiling STRIVE's inspiring principal Ed Chang in this piece.
Even more compelling than charts and videos is actually being there to see the incredible work going on in the lives of individual students, and in the greater West End community through this school. We are hosting an open house at STRIVE on February 27th from 9:00-10:30am so you can see STRIVE's teachers in action, meet some of our students, teachers and leaders in person, and learn more about how you can help support STRIVE in achieving it's ambitious goals. We promise that you will leave with a deeper understanding of the ingredients that lead to transformative education for kids and inspired by the work underway at STRIVE.
Please register by Monday, March 11th, 2013.
