“Evanston Township High School is a well-resourced school, but there’s an achievement gap. We’re addressing the opportunity gap between high-income and low-income students. It’s not about competing with [the school]. It’s about what else do students need? This is a place that kids are comfortable, and they’ve developed relationships that help them really realize their fullest potential.”
