As a mother of three in Bridgeport, CT, I struggled to get my kids a high quality education and the help they needed from their traditional public school. My son, Steven, has had a lot of issues with math and reading and getting his work done on time. At his old public school, he was put on an improvement plan but I noticed that they also started to modify his work, making it easier for him. If you want the child to succeed, modifying his work is not the way to go and I wanted my son in a school that helped him without sacrificing the quality or difficulty of the work. This is when I knew I needed to find a new school for my kids.

At Capital Prep Harbor School, Steven gets the same work as everyone in his class as well a 1:1 support. The difference in his performance has been huge since switching from his traditional public school. One of the biggest contributors to his success is the open communication that we have with his teachers and the principal. The staff and teachers treat us like we are family and that is part of what makes Capital Prep so special. They make you feel at home and that is something that everyone should have at a school.
With the support provided from the relationships we’ve built with teachers and my children’s peers – Steven is no longer struggling and my daughter Natasha is an A and B student.
Parents who want what’s best for their kids should have options like Capital Prep. I didn’t finish high school and I want to give my kids the best. If that means switching them to a high-quality public charter school, then I will do that. I hope other parents are given that same opportunity. I know that at Capital Prep my children are getting the education they need to graduate high school prepared to finish college.

The difference that Capital Prep has made for my children has inspired me to be an advocate for more schools like it. That is why I am writing today. To make sure that our elected officials know how important high-quality options, like charter schools, are to families like mine. We need to make sure that our elected officials support high-quality public charter school funding.
