This stellar performance is stunning, as no other known charter institution has had such rapid growth. It has been a desire to find out what has been transpiring at Success, which triggered several visits to the different schools and a series of interviews with students, teachers and directors of the various schools. The research also led to interactions with former teachers, parents and other relevant critics. These communications have also taken place via email with most exchanges happening through the communications director one Ms. Ann Powell.
The difference is that the success occurs due to a unique focus that guarantees success.
