CEO NEWS & NOTES
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I would like to thank all the members of our charter school community who have contributed to such high marks and positive outcomes on our NYS Report Card that reflects a 95% graduation rate and our outperformance of the city and state on all measures of accountability and performance.
These results are not accidental and reflect a deliberate plan that includes the consistent communication of high academic and behavioral expectations to all of our scholars by our faculty, staff, and parents. The investment that we have made in the success of each of our scholars is further evidenced by the fact that our 5th cohort of scholars will be attending the college of their choice in the Fall of 2014. It is this clear and deliberate vision for preparation combined with the opportunity, which opens the door of greatness and a world of possibility for the Kwasis in our school community (Read more
