The 2016 Top Bay Area Schools for Underserved Students report shows a major gap in student achievement, specifically with low-income African American and Latino students performing far worse than other students.
The 2016 Top Bay Area Schools for Underserved Students report shows a major gap in student achievement, specifically with low-income African American and Latino students performing far worse than other students. The problem is even more serious in the Bay Area, where local schools tend to trail the state average in test scores in English and math for these student groups. On December 1, Innovate Public Schools celebrated the 47 local schools bucking this trend.
Alameda County Superior Court Judge Robert McGuiness was very welcoming to our students and invited them back to visit anytime! He said their questions were relevant and very interesting!
Our students were so well-behaved! I was so proud of them. They stood up and introduced themselves when asking their questions. They also gave intelligent responses when he questioned them. Most of them said the best part was listening to Judge McGuiness.
Dear AIMS Family,
As many of you are aware, our city experienced a significant loss this weekend. As a mother who has children in the age range of those who died, I mourn. As a product of this great city, and as leader of this organization, I am left wanting to do something restorative.
Many of you may be experiencing emotions like these around this tragedy, and some of you may have been directly affected. Please know that at AIMS we are a family, and we are here for each other. If you are experiencing grief, reach out and connect with a friend to talk about your concerns.
Life is unpredictable, and we must learn to appreciate the beauty in it.Remember to celebrate the good, and show appreciation for those who are on this journey with you.
Your students may also be coming with sad emotions about the fire. Assure them that they are okay, and you are here to listen to them.
At AIMS, we don’t just say that we are a family, we take care of our family members.
Please know that your leaders are here for you, and we ask that you continue to be there for the students.
We are strong because we are together.
AIPHS teacher Daniel Marks and the AIPHS students are letting us know what is happening in their world.
Great job Mr. Marks!
Once again, AIMS has been recognized for our education of low-income African American students and AIPHS has been recognized for their 100% graduation rate.
The cherry on the sundae is that both AIPCS and AIPCS 2 have received this recognition. It is also important to note, that AIMS schools were the only schools who received this recognition in Math for Middle schools. We are honored by this recognition, and recommit ourselves to increase the percentage this year.
