The program serves the high school and two middle schools, as well as two of the district’s most challenged elementary programs both of which are located on a former air force base where poverty rates and other at-risk factors significantly depress student performance. Students participate in after-school programming aimed to improve their performance in math, reading and science. Special efforts help to address the high school drop-out rate of more than 35%. Parents also participate in literacy programs and family educational events. The project partners closely with Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church with several Spanish-language program offerings. Other partners include the Boys and Girls Club, the MLSD Key Club, and Big Bend Community College.
