Our reach is continually expanding and the hard work and dedication of many is having a great impact.
LOWER SCHOOL & PRIMARY EDUCATION
2020-2021 and 2021-2022
Our inaugural year started with 12 students, divided into two classes. It later grew to 17 students - ten (10) in our older group and seven (7) in our younger group.. With the advantage of small class sizes, our students were able to grow tremendously in their first year.
- 83% demonstrated at least one full year of academic growth
- 73% demonstrated at least 1.5 years of academic growth
Our second full school year started off with a bang with enrollment more than doubling from the start of year 1. Our school now consists of 30 kids divided evenly in three classes. Our kids are projected to achieve the following by the end of the school year:
- 100% of the kids in year 2 of our program will be reading and writing at grade level in their native language
-50% of our kids will be reading and writing at grade level in two (2) languages
