Partners for Success
Partners for Success is an East-West initiative to support our struggling middle school students. It was produced and launched in January 2012 by a team of assistant principals, guidance counselors, and community assistants.
The purpose of Partners for Success is to help our middle school students who have been struggling academically to become more successful in school and to develop their social skills. It will focus on providing academic guidance as well as the improved development of social skills.
