"Schools that do not have an effective strategy for convincing students to become invested in their education – to work hard, study, arrive at school on time and prepared, and generally care about learning, are unlikely to reduce disparities in academic outcomes and raise student achievement." -Pedro Noguera
We start another year of academic excellence at Educational Solutions schools! We are gratified that
our loyal families are benefiting from our research-proven instructional practices, family-like atmosphere and our belief that "every child can learn". And we have the data to prove it! Well over 70% of the third grade students in our two elementary schools (Educational Academy for Boys and Girls and Cesar Chavez College Preparatory School) passed the third grade reading guarantee! Nearly 80% of the 8th graders at Midnimo Cross Cultural Community School scored proficient in reading! Students made tremendous yearly academic gains in each of our schools, and the overall Performance Index was significantly higher at each school.
We enter this school year with the strongest teaching and administrative team in our history! Before and after school programs are available, and special interest clubs abound! A laser-like focus on instructional processes and Data-Driven decision making characterize our schools, and we look forward to partnering with our parents and guardians to continue our momentum towards becoming truly exemplary schools for the benefit of the communities we serve!
