Transformation Story: Truman School

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 we set here at Truman are aligned with the fact that we want our students to be proficient readers, writers and upright citizens." - Truman School Principal Terry Johnson
