NPFE has demonstrated consistent success, year after year, in increasing academic achievement for students, regardless of racial, economic, English language, special education, or gender status. We scaled slowly to create an instructional model that would improve academic outcomes for our students. Year after year, we have fine tuned our model to produce consistent results.
Our network serves majority Black and Brown students, and our students are 92% Black, 6% Latino, and 2% other races. Over 73% of our students are low-income. NPFE provides bilingual services and English as a Second Language in-school supports to support our growing Latinx student community.
"NPFE has the awesome privilege and responsibility to ensure all our kids are being properly prepared both academically and socio-emotionally to go out into the world and have success in college and in life."
