Our Impact

Helping Students Become Lifelong Learners

Bringing Learning to Life

Children are naturally curious, and SHARP’s programs guide them toward new ways of learning that promote creative thinking and problem solving. We bring learning to life by actively engaging students with hands-on activities, educational tours, collaborative summer and after-school programs, mural projects and more.

Evaluation of SHARP's Core Program

Recently, Amy Nelson Christensen completed an evaluation of SHARP’s core program. It was conducted to evaluate the impact of SHARP’s core program in their sponsored schools for the 2018-19 school year. Students were interviewed and assessed, and teachers were surveyed. The report can be found here.

Demonstrable Outcomes

Our unique approach leads to demonstrable outcomes with students increasing their background knowledge that is so important to reading comprehension, while discovering a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.

Today, our program reaches – and positively impacts – a diverse student population that for the 2019-20 school year is 48% Hispanic, 33% African-American, 9% Caucasian, 7 % Asian and 3% multi-racial/other ethnicities.
