How Do You Measure Success!

For some, success means our fourth graders mastering the division of whole numbers in our Go Math! Curriculum. For others, success means our preschoolers and kindergartners discovering the wonder of the alphabet; forming words and beginning to recognize sight words. For some, success means taking part in leadership roles through our Early Act Clubs, where students learn the importance of community and supporting each other. Still for others, success means getting up extra early in the morning to practice complicated musical scores in our middle school jazz band. Success may mean walking across the stage on May 31st as an 8th Grade Graduate of District 142.
