Higher Achievement Richmond, held after school and during the summer, serves middle school students from schools in Richmond’s Northside and Southside neighborhoods (Henderson Middle School and Boushall Middle School). Higher Achievement is focusing on these two school communities at the request of the Richmond Public Schools School Board. Both schools are Title I schools, with almost 100 percent of students eligible for free and reduced-price meals.
Impact in Richmond
Mary Lloyd Parks
When Mary Lloyd Parks first heard about a new program called Higher Achievement that was starting in Richmond, she fell in love with the idea that she could work with the same group of scholars during critical years of their life: middle school. She explains, “I was drawn to the program because I wanted to encourage and support people going through the minefield of middle school. I loved the idea of working with the same scholars for three or four years, with the opportunity to provide consistency for them and to see the impact of the program over time.”
Higher Achievement scholars in Richmond improve their math grades at least 1 full letter grade or maintained an A/B average
