A Unique Approach
Founded in 1978, we are an innovator in creating model programs that translate visions for school improvement into concrete action. As an academic educational unit of Northeastern Illinois University, we are in a unique position to respond to the needs of these communities.
We are all both teachers and learners.
Everyone plays an essential role in educating today’s children. Parents, teachers, students and neighborhood communities are active partners in our programs. Through these partnerships we seek to address real needs and improve educational equity and excellence.
