Transformation Story: Terrytown Elementary

In the spring of 2018, JP Schools leaders created a Transformation Network designed to rapidly improve student outcomes in the district’s most challenged schools. Stronger results created from thoughtful, strategic approaches are what the students, families, and communities deserve. These are their stories.

"The goals at Terrytown Elementary are a little bit unique. We think about the students we serve, and it's always to improve student achievement. It's also to improve proficiency in their language and language acquisition." - Terrytown Elementary Principal Teresita Diaz
