Seeking the best education for our children is an on-going discussion for many parents. It's a very complicated topic to tackle, and often times it's not very easy to find options when they're needed. Recently, charter schools (free public schools that offers an alternative to your zone school) have gained a tremendous amount of momentum with more than two million students in 6,000 schools nationwide, mostly because many offer well-rounded, hands-on curriculum designed to foster learning and exploration.
Interested in our extraordinary community of mothers, Success Academy Charter School asked six Latina Bloggers in the NYC area to share their personal stories and thoughts about a Charter School education - Adventures of a Military Family of 8, Hecho Para Mama, La Familia Cool, Mama Boricua en Brooklyn, The Digital Latina and Tough Cookie Mommy.
Top 3% in NYC for student performance, Success Academy offers rigorous academics generating incredible results in addition to offering a creative literacy program, art/chess classes, productive play time, a collaborative based curriculum taught by an impressive roster of professional, highly trained teachers and field-study trips showcasing a wide variety of the best NYC has to offer.
Reading a compelling book, hypothesizing about whether an object will sink or float, molding the perfect papier-mâché dragon head or writing an engaging story are just a few examples of what happens at Success Academy Charter. Over the next two weeks make sure you follow our chosen #LatinaBloggers and help us open up the dialogue about a better education.
