A Message from the Administrator
Meet the Administrator
Annette began her educational career in Grand Rapids, MI. After just a couple years of teaching, she moved to Montgomery County, Maryland. There, she took a position in the MCPS Alternative Program. Teaching the students in this program ignited a passion to reach students that did not fit into a pre-programmed academic mold.
Parallel Hope Schools (PHS) has a goal that no student will struggle from not understanding or learning quick enough; where every student is able to learn all of the material taught. This revolutionary new school - one in which every student is able to learn – will be a place that focuses on students' needs, skills and learning styles.
This is not education as usual, and not a computers-are-the-answer form of education. PHS believes that education today can be rigorous while still genuinely meeting the needs of every child at every moment, but simply differentiating the instruction given inside of a single classroom group is not enough. Children and their parents deserve more. They deserve an education hand crafted for their child and taught in a classroom setting with lessons designed by teachers and taught in person.
PHS will work to change the look and outcomes of education. For each individual child. PHS will be a whole new type of school.
Parallel Hopes Schools is a not-for-profit organization (official IR 501c3 status) whose goal is to improve the education experience for every child. Please partner with us.
