After running my first full marathon in Charleston, SC in January of last year, I am thrilled to be running the NYC Half and raising money for Inwood Academy. Those of you who know me know that Inwood has been more than a teaching job -- it has been my home away from home for the last three years. If you can, please help me in supporting the school that has been and continues to be a home for so many.
Inwood Academy for Leadership is honored to be an official charity partner in the 2018 United Airlines NYC Half.
Join me and help raise funds for our new Senior Scholarship Book Fund.
2017-18 is a milestone school-year of education and service for Inwood Academy. We celebrate our first graduating class!
Our race goal is to raise $10,000 of the $32,800 needed for the Senior Scholarship Book Fund.
Inwood Academy is a trailblazer in the New York charter school environment. We welcome every student who applies and is accepted via our lottery. We meet students where they are, whether they speak little to no English or if they are four years behind their peers when they enroll with us in the fifth grade.
In 2010, Inwood Academy started with 110 fifth grade students and joined forces with its community of partners and families to provide a quality education in northern Manhattan. In the past seven years, we have grown to serve 900 students in grades five to twelve. Through our unique inclusive school model, we are providing access to a great education. Our success is evidenced by our 12% proficiency increase in English Language Arts test scores in 2017; compared to the NYC-wide growth rate of 2.6%.
Please support a member of Team Inwood Academy, and join us in making a difference, one child at a time.
