Just two years ago, Anthony, a fifth-grade student at Victory School, was dejected and reclusive as he struggled to read. He avoided reading aloud in class, and although he had dreams of going to college, he was performing poorly in all his subjects and was fast losing confidence. Take a moment to read what a difference the SHARP program has made for Anthony.
November is here and the SHARP program is in full-swing. We just introduced a strategic plan that represents a continuation of the award-winning, visual arts based program that has become synonymous with SHARP Literacy. Experiential learning remains key to our strategy. Every student has now become even more actively engaged and involved in learning through a program that is dedicated to improved assessments and instruction. The SHARP program remains rooted in our mission of literacy through the visual arts, yet has incorporated a cutting-edge approach with the addition of STEM into curriculum materials.
