We are elated to have the opportunity to extend our scholars’ school day through our partnership with R2L. We have a big task in preparing ALL of our scholars to go to college. R2L is helping us serve 45 of our most struggling scholars through the program. Without R2L, these scholars’ learning would end at 3:30, so many of our parents have expressed their gratitude having this opportunity. It has been great growing the partnership between Heights scholars and R2L staff.
