As an incoming 10th grader in the Atlanta Metro School District, Dora was concerned that her courses weren’t challenging and wanted to take upper-level courses. The Atlanta metro school district where Dora attends school has been in a partnership with Equal Opportunity Schools for two academic years. In that time, the district has expanded its AP program enrollments by 20 percent! 🎉 We will always strive to show our partner students their true potential.

Juneteenth is Now a Federal Holiday!
From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of June 19 as the African American Emancipation Day has spread across the United States and beyond. Today Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. It is a day, a week, and in some areas a month marked with celebrations, guest speakers, picnics, and family gatherings.
