Second grader Jaceon is the epitome of academic success. When Jaceon came to The Foundations School, his past school experiences left him with severe learning loss. A large part of his struggle was reading, just like so many of his peers enrolled in the school.

When The Foundations School started this past January, just 9% of students was reading on grade level. Jaceon was one of the least proficient readers in his class. His teacher recognized that he needed additional reading support. She began working with him in small groups with targeted instruction and guided reading.

Today, Jaceon loves reading thanks to the one-on-one attention he receives and the school’s unique arts-blended approach to teaching—and Jaceon has seen some of the best reading gains.

Arts-based education techniques have resulted in improvements for students in every classroom. Five months after The Foundations School began, more than 40% of the student population was reading at grade level.

Stories like Jaceon’s are why The Foundations School exists.

For only $2,000 you can supply one classroom with books and arts supplies for an entire school year. Each and every dollar you donate will help these students succeed.
