SHINE BRIGHTLY FOR OTHERS The Campaign For North Star Expansion

TIME TO GROW North Star has the rare opportunity—with a talented group of teachers and leaders, a supportive political environment, a collaborative district, and the systems to replicate successfully—to double in size over the next several years. To get there, North Star needs philanthropic support.

A PLAN FOR SUSTAINABILITY To make a lasting impact on public education in Newark, each North Star school’s core operational model is sustainable on the public dollar at full enrollment. Investing in North Star now leverages public funding to start schools that will support 2,500 additional students a year in perpetuity.
