AppleTree Treats Early Childhood Education Like Rocket Science
Article in The 74: AppleTree’s success partnering with other public charter schools is highlighted in this December 18, 2016 article by Richard Whitmire in The 74.
In this article, Whitmire writes that AppleTree treats early childhood education like rocket science. By partnering with elementary public charter schools like Rocketship Rise, AppleTree gives students a strong foundation that prepares them for kindergarten and enables the elementary school teachers to build upon their students’ success.
Whitmire suggests this be done throughout the United States: “In D.C., anyone visiting an AppleTree site will get a glimpse of what could be broadly transformative in other cities.”
