Lincoln Charter School is excited to announce that they will be celebrating National School Choice Week (January 26-February 1, 2020) with a special spotlight event!
Lincoln Charter School will be Celebrating School Choice for the 10th Year with a pep rally. Lincoln Charter School will be hearing from Dr. Leonard Hart, CEO, students, and members of the community. Lincoln Charter School will be singing, dancing, and cheering our love for school choice. The lions will hear about our history and celebrate all school choice partners.
Lincoln Charter School was founded in 1999 as the first conversion school in Pennsylvania. The lions have educated over 18,000 students in the last twenty years. Lincoln Charter School has just asked for an expansion to extended education to grades 6-8. Lincoln Charter School went from the lowest-performing elementary school in the district to the highest performing school. Lincoln Charter consistently outperforms the other schools in the district – between 2002 and 2009 Lincoln Charter School’s Pennsylvania System of State Assessment (PSSA) Reading scores grew by 25.2 points compared with other schools in the district that grew by 14 points on average. Based on the success of Lincoln Charter School, support was given to open the Helen Thackston Middle School in 2008.
Started in 2011, National School Choice Week is the world’s largest annual education-related celebration. The goal of NSCW, which features participation from tens of thousands of schools and organizations, is to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for children.
During National School Choice Week, schools across America celebrate the challenging, motivating, and effective education they provide to students. At the same time, parents use the week to learn more about the education options available to their children, in advance of the upcoming school year.
National School Choice Week is nonpartisan and nonpolitical, and is not related to any legislative advocacy efforts.
