We are launching a new brand / organization that is going to transform an existing school on the South Side of Chicago (note that the student population and community is 90+% African American).
The following are our new school's design anchors:
1. We are Empowered.
We are empowered learners who cultivate curiosity, passion and personal ownership in our learning and in our lives.
2. We are Affirmed.
Our learning community affirms and supports students and staff individual identities by helping them develop a mindset of success and self worth.
3. We are Connected.
We prioritize and celebrate the value of relationships, joy and collaboration with our community.
4. We are Responsive.
We meet everyone where they are and design learning experiences with them in mind.
Finally, as a school, we have a variety of stakeholders including: prospective teachers, families, students, and philanthropists among others.
