Promise Academy is a new TK-12 public school that will focus on science, technology, engineering, and math, and will operate in partnership with The Tech Museum of Innovation. The school’s founder, Dr. Anthony Johnson, previously led a successful turnaround school and opened a new comprehensive high school in California. As a school administrator, he oversaw English language programs for a high school serving over 1,000 current or former English learners. The growth of the academic achievement of these students was so significant under his watch that it catalyzed a school turnaround that took the school from being under state sanctions to getting national recognition.

In response to some of the questions that came up at the School Board vote and in the weeks afterward, Promise Academy prepared this Fact Sheet for parents and community members.

Also, mark your calendars: the County will vote on Promise Academy on September 6.
