At LEMO we believe in timing, rhythm and instinct; and we are certain that strategically partnering with community leaders is the next step in our plan for education reform. The education achievement gap continues to grow at a more rapid pace than ever: only 40% of high school students in East Palo Alto are graduating from high school. We believe we are the solution for closing this gap. At LEMO, we recognize that every Playmaker is unique and different. However, our institutionalized approach remains consistent for each Playmaker. The LEMO academic process includes:
- Goal Setting
- One-on-one tutoring
- Assessment of learning differences or special needs
- Quiet and safe environment to study; which includes up-to-date computers and software
- Monthly meetings to discuss grades, testing, class behavior, etc.
- Correspondence with their guidance counselors and teachers
- SAT Prep courses
- College applications
- College visits
Academics are essential in every Playmaker’s future. We need your help to continue to close the gap. Join the movement and be a catalyst for change!
