To benefit a new charter school committed to eliminating the opportunity gap in Asheville
We hope to prove what is possible – to close the gap by having our black/brown students scoring at or above the levels of the white students, and to have a high percent of our students prepared for honors/AP in high school and go on to college. Our intent is to share our successes with Asheville City Schools and Buncombe County Schools to help eradicate the gap not just for our students, but all students of color in the area.
