Visiting Academy of the Pacific Rim (Part 2)

Following up on my earlier post about the Academy of the Pacific Rim (APR) … college awareness starts very early at APR. The 5th and 6th grade homerooms are named after colleges: Princeton, Williams, Georgetown, Tulane, Wake Forest, Brown, Stanford, BC, BU, Duke and Johns Hopkins (Harvard did not make the list…) I would worry if this was done at a fancy private school or hyper-competitive public school. However, for a charter school that is trying to plant the seed of awareness of college, this is a great way to make the concept of college as destination visible at a young age.
