Getting Started
Find out whether your school has high standards.

Your school should have clear, challenging standards for what students should know. For example, what reading, writing and math skills is your child expected to have by fourth grade? By eighth and twelfth grades? What about history, science, the arts, geography, and other languages? Are responsibility and hard work recognized? If your school doesn’t have high standards, join with teachers, principals, and other parents to set these standards.
