Guadalupe School's K-6 Charter School is home to 300 students. Not only are students provided free bus transportation - making it possible to maintain an excellent 95% attendance rate - but they also receive free breakfast and lunch. Students learn and grow in small classes with a maximum of 25 students each, and that include instruction from both a wonderful teacher and a bilingual paraprofessional. Those in need of extra assistance participate in student-led, one-on-one tutoring.
On top of superb classroom learning, Charter School students enjoy extra curricular opportunities and community resources made possible through partners of Guadalupe School. A robust After School program provides homework help and enrichment activities, US Bank and the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Foundation provides a full-time art teacher salary so that students can enjoy art classes, and the University of Utah Tanner Dance program provides dance classes, recitals, and dance scholarships.
Our Charter School's success is due in part to the strong emphasis our organization places on parent involvement. Charter School parents are required to do at least 20 hours of service per semester, although many go far above and beyond that minimum. Involved parents meet monthly to discuss how to improve their children's grade school experiences, and help out in classrooms, at the front office, and at school events. These parents often comment on how their children strive to succeed as they see the investment their involved parents are making at their school.
