Description

Powerful Schools reduces the academic achievement gap by creating strong partnerships with public schools to help children thrive. Through literacy, arts, after-school and leadership programs, we ensure all children succeed both in and out of school.

Reading proficiently by the end of third grade is a crucial marker in a child's educational development. In fact, those not reading at grade level are four times more likely not to graduate. For kids in poverty, the prospect of failure is even higher.

Powerful Schools believes that all students can succeed in school with the right combination of quality programs, focused resources and community support. With the increased support provided by Powerful Schools we have witnessed that our students are able to transition smoothly into elementary school, achieve grade-level reading and remain motivated and engaged in their education. This helps prepare young children for middle and high school, and eventually college.
