No Excuses University

Research shows that students exposed to college culture at an earlier age are more likely pursue higher education after high school graduation. By teaching students that college begins in kinder, it is our dream to make college readiness a reality for all students. College readiness is not the belief that every student will go to college; rather it is the idea that every student deserves the opportunity to be educated in a way that prepares them should they choose to attend. In an effort to expose students to the concept of college, every Pre-Kinder-5th grade classroom at Mead has adopted a different university.
