"This is MY School" is an occasional series running through the end of the year. It explores how partnerships among key groups - parents, students, teachers and communities - can bolster schools at a time when funding is dwindling but expectations for achievement are rising.
As part of this series, we'll highlight innovative ways Midlands schools are creating and sustaining these relationships. Conder is just one example of many Midlands area schools that have found success - both academic and behavioral - with mentoring programs.
