“I am proud of Einstein Charter School Sherwood Forest for receiving recognition for embracing Einstein’s belief of equity in education, for all populations,” said CEO Shawn Toranto.
The Imagine Learning English program helps to close the proficiency achievement gap that used to take years for a student to achieve. By using the program in schools the students are successful in a shorter amount of time. Imagine Learning awarded this honor based on ESL program teachers’ promotion of the program in their school and innovative techniques being used with students. It is also based on student usage.
“This award is not about me,” said ESL teacher LaQuita Garnett. “This is about the students and Einstein’s commitment to success for the ELL population.”
Ashley Wright, Area Partnership Manager for Imagine Learning, was on hand to present the plaque to Mrs. Garnett and some of her students. After the presentation Mrs. Garnett asked Ms. Wright was the next step up was from “Super School” status.
“We now have a goal to work towards,” said Garnett. “Imagine Learning is a program that helps our students succeed and they deserve the recognition, we are ready to move up to the top 10% in the nation!”
