Howard N. Lee visionary founder of the Howard N. Lee Institute, a nonprofit education group established on furthering the educational outcome of students in our public schools.
The Institute will work with middle schools across the State to identify gifted and talented at-risk students from diverse social, economic and cultural backgrounds to enroll in STEM courses in middle school. The school, parents and students will collaborate with the Institute who will provide them with assistance through Saturday Academies, technology, online curriculum support, a school course elective, mentors/tutors, and school and parental encouragement.
The Institute will provide support to local school communities as they organize and meet to develop and implement a strategic plan for addressing the crisis of failing students, student dropouts, achievement gap challenges, and low performing schools.
Join the Institute and its network of organizations, businesses, schools, and collegiate partners in our mission to improve the educational opportunities of all students through collaboration and coordination. Support the students and the work of the Institute with your contribution today and Join the Movement!
