Schools like Roxbury Preparatory Charter School in Massachusetts are making great strides in changing the educational trajectory of middle school students in their community. The formula is simple, but takes commitment on many levels to achieve:
- The curriculum is rigorous, engaging, and well-planned.
- The school emphasizes student character, community responsibility, and exposure to life’s possibilities.
- A community network supports student academic, social, and physical well-being.
Roxbury Prep helps students gain admission to outstanding public and private college preparatory high schools.
We like schools like Robxury Prep because their purpose is aligns with what Breakthrough believes in- preparing students to enter, succeed in, and graduate from college and placing passionate teachers in the classroom.
Now they need people like you: highly motivated, young college graduates to serve as Apprentice Teachers for the 2008-2009 school year. So, if you’ve taught a summer or two at a Breakthrough site and loved seeing the positive changes in your students as well as yourself, this could be another chance for you to do something that really matters.
