Although Title One has changed over the years; the goal has always been to help students in need. The primary goal of Title I is to develop in each child: -- a feeling of success and self-confidence -- develop a positive attitude toward themselves so that they become interested in the learning process. -- to provide classroom atmosphere where frequent encouragement and praise will help the students take the next step they need in their personal educational skills. We are fortunate to be a part of this continuing process.
