About The Achievement Place

Our mission is to prepare children through effective instruction and innovative leadership to be self- confident, intellectually inquisitive, emotionally intelligent, and academically competent beings. Our children will be innovative leaders and problem solvers who will improve conditions for our local, state and global communities. The mission is grounded in the skills, characteristics and knowledge that young people need to be productive citizens.  It also reflects the desired outcomes of a highly effective education.

Opportunity gaps will be closed as all scholars achieve academically at high levels.  The mission is meant to inspire and uplift everyone involved in the work of developing young people. The mission is a conscious effort to prepare young people to serve and care about their communities, to give them the skills necessary to be successful in high school and college, and prepare them to be change agents, movement leaders, and problem solvers within those communities.

ScholarMade offers a unique approach to increasing student achievement by collaborating with communities, school districts and families to increase student achievement and student agency. Families and communities are essential forms of support that ensure schools not only help students to achieve academically, but also ensure that the quality of life for children living in poverty is improved.  Our collective strength will reach more students to transfer learning and leadership as we all pursue achievement.

ScholarMade Monarchs!

There’s a place for you!
