Namaste Charter School changes the trajectory of underserved children's lives.
Namaste is an innovative Chicago public elementary and middle school that promotes lifelong student success and a love of learning by implementing and sharing a groundbreaking educational model that combines health and wellness with academic rigor in a peaceful environment.
Namaste's trailblazing programs - like 60 minutes of Physical Education for all students every day, a healthy breakfast and lunch with salad bar and nutritious fresh entrees, free family wellness programming, and our new "Learning the Namaste Way" initiative to help other teachers build healthier schools - require private investment beyond the public funding the school receives.
Now in our ninth school year, we are building a brighter, healthier Chicago and nation. 98% of Namaste general education students are meeting or exceeding state standards - nearly 20 points higher than the district average. And students are developing lifelong healthy habits that help reverse the alarming childhood obesity epidemic.
