Allow Newberry Math and Science Academy remain a Magnet School


It is crucial that Newberry Math & Science Academy remains a Magnet School versus becoming a "neighborhood school" which would mean losing our emphasis on Math & Science. Newberry Math & Science Academy maintains high academic expectations for children residing all over the city.  They educate students of diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds through scientific and mathematical problem solving approaches to academic and social learning.  Newberry addresses individual interests, needs and learning styles, through an integrated curriculum, preparing students to participate in our global community.   We, the Newberry Community, would like to continue our Mayor’s ambitious vision for CPS to:  “Ensure that every child -in every school and every neighborhood-has access to a world-class learning experience from birth.”

Please help support the children of Newberry Math & Science Academy remain a diverse magnet school by signing this petition.
