The RISE Schools
The RISE Schools is a free public charter school network in East Point, Georgia. The RISE Schools is comprised of RISE Grammar School, which serves kindergarten through grade five, and RISE Prep School, which serves grades six, seven, and eight.
The mission of The RISE Schools is to provide a rigorous and holistic education that develops the minds and character of scholars to be catalysts for social change. When scholars graduate from RISE, they will have the capacity to maintain balance between competition and compassion to be catalysts for social change in their lives and in their communities. This mission and vision are vital to the children in south Fulton County as quality public education options are more limited in this region. Scholars in the area do not currently have the opportunity to engage in a holistic model that reinforces both academic and social-emotional growth while instilling in scholars the care for their surrounding community.
The holistic model focuses on the following six pillars; 1) restorative practices, 2) entrepreneurship, 3) ethics of care, 4) experiential learning, 5) culturally responsive teaching, and 6) social-emotional wellness. This approach to whole-scholar development recognizes that sustained learning is achieved by integrating all aspects of the educational experience rather than compartmentalizing subjects, as is the practice in traditional public education. This educational experience is particularly important for children who are historically marginalized in the public education system.
