The research is clear, kids at school's with a more involved parent base do better on key measures including academic and social.  Neighborhoods associated with high achieving schools are more desirable. So what are you waiting for?  What have you got to lose?  Make this the year you commit to your student, your school your neighborhood! 
We'd Love Your Help!
