The old saying that it takes a village to raise a child is true, and we all play a role in fostering a healthy, thriving community for education and development.


“By denying children access to rigorous classes, we waste their potential… and we deny them the opportunity to improve their lives as well as ours. We must challenge our students and create a system that demands they step up to the plate – and to do so, we must challenge ourselves.”

– Excerpt from remarks made by U.S. Secretary of Education, Margaret Spellings, at the opening of the Davidson Academy, Reno, Nevada.
