A Learning Enhancement
A children’s ability to learn in the classroom and to reach their full potential depends on what we do right now as a community to ensure their health.
Students in more affluent school districts arrive at school better prepared academically and generally have fewer unmet needs and significantly more money is spent on their education and mental health than schools in poor areas of the city.
Many students come to school with a wide array of unmet social, material and emotional needs that affect their ability to learn.
Anecdotal evidence from teachers suggests that large numbers of students come to school hungry, without adequate clothing, and suffering from high levels of stress and anxiety.
Our models focus heavily on addressing the mental and physical health of the students we support.
