There is a whole population of students who attend schools lacking proper resources. They don’t have books at home and are not prepared for academic success. Thankfully, there is an organization whose mission is to target those exact students and boost them up so they are prepared for school and the future.
They work mostly with public schools in Seattle’s south end, an area known as a low socio-economic zone. Many parents of their students work two or three jobs just to make ends meet. They don’t have extra money for tutoring, books or school supplies.
Powerful Schools recognizes there is a strong need to address. They tackle it head on. They are actually closing the achievement gap and helping get students to high school and beyond.
