School Improvement Projects

We believe every kid deserves to learn and grow in an environment that puts them first. We’re raising charter school financing that can transform schools into safe, vibrant learning spaces. From providing funds for critical building maintenance, to creating new opportunities for learning, here are some of the ways Wonderful Foundations is making a difference in charter schools.

With support from WF, the school completed 2 phases of expansion, including 10 new classrooms, admin space, and most recently the addition of covered walkways connecting buildings.
