Children

There are more than 3,000 homeless children enrolled in Atlanta schools—and countless more who are not. Trauma, disrupted education, and frustrating circumstances leave them struggling.

 

LEARNING TO READ –
READING TO LEARN

The ability to read on grade level by the end of 3rd grade is a well studied benchmark in education. After 3rd grade, students are expected to learn through reading. Children who are struggling to read at this point often find continued academic success impossible. Because of trauma and interrupted education within the homeless community, these children are particularly vulnerable to this circumstance.

WITHIN REACH OF
OUR 5-YEAR GOAL

The Boyce L. Ansley School plans to become a PreK-3 school in which all students achieve grade-level proficiency in reading and math to help ensure continued academic success for these children as they reach beyond circumstance.
