RiseUp Community School

RiseUp Community School uses a project-embedded model that gives students the chance to apply curriculum content every day. RiseUp’s goal is to deeply engage students in their own education in order to create self-motivated learners. RiseUp students are able to participate in internships, concurrent enrollment, and technical college classes so that students can transition smoothly between high school and post-secondary plans.
