Our mission is to activate all students to determine and pursue an informed future.
I am extremely invested in the Education Opens Doors Program because I have already seen the huge impact it has had on my students. They are able to connect how their current academic and personal choices are leading them to greater success in their high school and college careers.”
I am invested in Education Opens Doors because I KNOW that the content is incredibly important for our students before they begin 9th grade. It is a proactive way to give students a strong start to high school.”
Once you give students a glimmer of hope, they begin to see opportunities they never thought of before. Education Opens Doors has increased our graduation rate at Houston North. In 2015-2016 we had approximately 100 graduates. In 2016-2017 we had approximately 140 graduates. Of those 140 graduates, 75 of them applied to and were accepted into either a junior college or 4 year university.”
I knew that college was expensive but I didn't realize how much you'd have to pay for your dorm, or the textbooks and the classes. The program helped me realize that I need to start saving up so that I can get to where I want to be.”
