Is Higher Achievement the Best Choice for My Family?
Throughout this site, we discuss the needs of middle school students, the benefits Higher Achievement provides, and the students we serve. You can read about our rigor, our outstanding mentors, and our many successful scholars.
The facts are compelling. Consider these three points:
- In the move from elementary to middle school, students from all socioeconomic groups typically show a decline in academic achievement.
- Students in communities served by Higher Achievement are 10 times more likely to drop out of high school than are their peers in more affluent communities.
- Yet 95 percent of Higher Achievement scholars who complete the program advance to top academic high schools.
If your child attends school in a Higher Achievement community, Higher Achievement can provide new opportunities to learn, an engaging academic environment, a challenging curriculum, and supportive adults to help him or her succeed.
Equally important, we will be partners with you. In the words of one parent: “Higher Achievement is the perfect liaison between parent, student and the education system.” Another parent adds, “If one arm of this system sees the potential in a student that is not noticed elsewhere, every effort is made to have everyone realize each child's talent.”
Consider Higher Achievement. Together, we will help your child aim higher, stretch further, and succeed.
