Seeking to Expand Middle Level Success to All Students: A Not-So-Secret Recipe
White, Jesse
Middle School Journal (J3), v45 n3 p11-18 Jan 2014
The recipe for success of Strive Preparatory Charter School (formerly West Denver Preparatory Charter School) is not a secret. This summer program, turned four-campus, middle level phenomenon, is proving to satisfy the appetite of parents hungry for a change in their children's educational opportunities. The intent of this article is to share a set of simple, effective, and replicable practices used to defy the traditionally low odds of success for often-underserved student populations. Strive Prep teachers and administrators are successfully motivating, educating, and preparing students for present and future challenges through school culture building and implementation of specific structures for both people and time. In addition, practices that prevent discipline problems, as well as interventions when prevention is not enough, are integral to Strive Prep's effectiveness.
