Launched by an Opportunity 180 Building Excellent Schools Fellow
Futuro Academy, founded by Clark County School District veteran teacher, Teach for America Alumn and our first Las Vegas Building Excellent Schools Fellow, Ignacio Prado, opened its doors in Fall 2017 to 110 K-1st grade students in East Las Vegas. Futuro Academy provides an alternate option to students and families at Cambeiro Elementary School, a neighborhood Rising Star school, as well as other overcrowded and underperforming neighborhood schools. Futuro plans to grow a grade per year until it is a fully enrolled kindergarten through eighth grade school.
Transformation School (Partnership)
Democracy Prep at the Agassi Campus (DPAC) was initially inspired by our efforts to create a city-wide strategy to address educational inequity. Impressed by their academic success in other cities, we invited DPAC to our first school transformation summit in 2016, when they were offered a partnership by the board at Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy to improve student achievement. Under the leadership of Adam Johnson, DPAC opened its doors in Fall 2017 to serve 85% of the same K-12 students.
