Our goal is to help at risk, disengaged students become engaged and successful in school and in our community. We believe that all students have abilities, strengths, can learn, can make progress, and can change their level of engagement at school and with learning. We are excited to work with you this school year. Together, we can help make this a great school year for our students!
