The premise of public education is that every child that walks through the doors of a public school will receive the same quality of education that prepares them for success in college, career and life. In Clark County, 7 in 10 high school juniors report wanting to attend college. 7 in 10 graduate their senior year. But only 1 in 10 is college-ready, according to ACT test results. Across Nevada, zip code and household income continue to be indicators of the quality of the neighborhood public school that a child can attend.
Opportunity 180 is a nonprofit organization that works in partnership with the Clark County community to facilitate access to a great public school for students across all zip codes–with a focus on areas of greatest need.
What we do: We work with families, educators, and community leaders to facilitate the creation of more, high-quality public school seats accessible to every child. As a nonprofit organization, we offer resources to grow and launch great public schools, invest in organizations and leaders that will provide more students with outstanding educational opportunities, and provide families with data and tools to strengthen their role as their student's #1 advocate.
