Thanks, Bill & Andy, for hosting this fundraiser! Summit is a charter school in North Arlington, and is one of the five schools in the Uplift Education organization. One of the schools in Uplift, North Hills Preparatory Academy, was named the 9th Best High School in the U.S. by Newsweek Magazine this past Spring. Last year - in only our second year - Summit moved from "Academically Acceptable" to "Recognized" by the State of Texas, and our goal this year is to move our students to the "Exemplary" ranking. We receive some funding from the state and some from foundations and individuals; however, we have no tax base for additional funds and we are tuition-free to all students. We are considered a Title I School, which means we have a high percentage of poorer students. (About 75% of our students are on a free or reduced-fee lunch program.)
These supplies will mean a lot to the students in my school who don't have the resources to get everything they need. Thanks to all for your help! James
