Higher Expectations Honored as Friend of Education

Higher Expectations is extremely proud to be recognized for our work to improve educational and employment outcomes in Racine County.

Recently, at Racine's Harborfest, Higher Expectations received the "Outstanding Impact on Education" award. The event organizers, Leeward Business Advisors, shared this about our award: "It is one thing to set higher expectations, it is another to consistently exceed them. It is my pleasure to inform you that Higher Expectations is receiving the Leeward Business Advisors Harborfest Outstanding Impact on Education award in recognition of your many successes within Racine Unified School District."

Further, Racine Unified School District recently hosted their annual Encore! Awards, which recognizes teachers, staff, and partners for their success in improving achievement for RUSD students. This year, Higher Expectations was honored with the 2017 Encore! Friend of Education Award. RUSD shared this about our award: "Higher Expectations has worked closely with RUSD to expand full-day 4K and support the Racine Early Intervention Academy. They have made significant contributions to ensure the Academies of Racine SEE Your Future Expo is an excellent opportunity for our high school freshmen to learn about and meet local employers. Higher Expectations has also been a driver for continuous improvement efforts in RUSD."

Higher Expectations is deeply grateful for the acknowledgment of our work, and looks forward to continue partnering with great organizations, employers, and volunteers to improve outcomes for Racine County's students.
