About Middle School Prep
Education is an essential building block for a good life. When children have a positive experience during their early childhood education, community outcomes vastly improve in the areas of educational attainment, employment, and crime reduction.
We are helping children achieve their potential through education by focusing on programs that: prepare children birth to age six to enter kindergarten ready to learn; ensure students are reading proficiently by fourth-grade; provide resources to reduce the amount of stress facing students entering middle school; and provide after-school and mentoring programs for at-risk youth.
