School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2019—20)
Fortune School is located in the city of Sacramento and serves 1235 students. We are a charter school that operates countywide, proudly serving students within the Sacramento County and now, students from neighboring counties such as El Dorado County, Yolo County and Yuba County.
The foudation of our school system is to increase the availability of a rigorous college prep, TK-12 program for African American students. Authorized by the Sacramento County Board of Education, our school system was established and designed to address the severe and persistent African American achievement gap in the region. Fortune School’s model is to expand a grade level a year with its students up to grade 12. Our school is open to all students and offers a college preparatory education to students according to an educational model known as the Five Pillars.
Fortune School Five Pillars
- 1. High Expectations – We have high expectations for academic achievement and conduct that are clearly designed, measurable and make no excuses based on the on the background of the students. Students, parents, teachers and staff create and reinforce a culture of achievement and support.
- 2. Choice and Commitment – Students, their parents and staff choose to participate in the program. Everyone must make and uphold a commitment to the school and to each other to put in the time and effort required for success.
- 3. More Time – We know that there are no shortcuts when it comes to success in academics and life. With an extended school day, week and year; students, teachers, school leaders, parents and staff dedicate more time. This ensures that students acquire the knowledge and skills that prepare them for competitive colleges, as well as opportunities to engage in diverse extracurricular activities.
- 4. Focus on Results – We focus relentlessly on high student performance through standardized tests and other objective measures. Just as there are no shortcuts, there are no exceptions. Students are expected to achieve a level of academic performance that will enable them to succeed in the nation’s best colleges and the world beyond.
- 5. Citizenship - We strongly believe that the measure of a person’s success is in what he or she gives to others. Through community service, students develop a strong sense of civic responsibility and establish the foundation for a lifetime of meaningful community involvement. Students also deepen and demonstrate their learning and are empowered to become productive citizens in the community in which they live.
