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.
We believe in the power of an excellent public education. Our team is committed to increasing the number of high-quality public school seats to collaboratively help prove that every child can achieve, regardless of their social circumstance.
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.
