Raising Expectations serves children and youth in 4th through 12th grade. Within this range, we focus our efforts on those with low academic skills, low motivation in school, behavioral challenges, high absenteeism and children who come from low-income or single-family homes or homes with grandparents as the primary guardians. Additionally, we reach out to youth who have been expelled and sent to alternative schools and those who have interfaced with juvenile court.

As a snapshot of our students’ success, we are proud to share recent results from CRCT scores for 6th to 8th graders who met standards in a variety of educational categories. The results only edify our belief that our collective efforts with Kennedy Middle School’s teachers and staff are truly enhancing the academic outcomes. This partnership is a great example of how schools and afterschool programs can effectively collaborate to ensure success for all involved.
