A Little Love for Rainier Beach

Hello

I case you missed it. This was on the front page of the Seattle Times on March 3rd.

We were very pleased by the article, but please don't think that we are by any means satisfied. Having the highest percentage of African-American students meeting the WASL math standard is nice, until you realize that the great majority of students still don't meet the standard.

We are very excited about the programs that are coming to RB next year. We are adding the College Board EXCELerator program to our school. Here is a link:
