This year marks our 10th anniversary! Ten amazing years of extraordinary work in the Back of the Yards community - a tribute to the collective hard work and dedication to our community & its surrounding neighborhood’s young people and their families. We have worked hard to create a family-centered learning environment where young people and their families would feel welcome, one that challenged young people to take risks in their learning. 

This journey began in the Spring of 2012 when a stellar team of founding teachers was on a mission to build a powerhouse school for young people in the Back of the Yards & its surrounding communities - a place where students and families would be proud to call home.
