    Promise Academy is an awesome school. The children start the day in morning assembly; learning new words and phrases for the day together; say the pledge of allegiance and recite the Promise Pledge [I promise to do my best today. I promise to listen follow directions and act responsibly. I promise not to waste this day because it will never come again.]. There is a very energized staff working with the students of Promise Academy. There leadership is top notch. There librarian is a jewel; she actually teaches the same core information as any other teacher at the school. From kindergarten to firth grade the students learn they are global learners and are college bound. They also receive breakfast lunch and a nutritous snack each day.

    Located in the heart of North Memphis an area that has the nation's highest infant mortality rate education is literally a matter of life or death for Promise Academy's students. Promise's faculty and staff accept this challenge head on everyday. Their commitment to high expectations honor and the belief that every child WILL learn translates into hope excellence and perseverance for the children opening young eyes to a whole new world of opportunity.

    Promise Academy has an atmosphere and focus that impacts you as an individual the minute you enter their doors. I have never been in a school where everyone was so focused and excited about the education and exposure to more for these inner city children.

    I am very glad my grandchildren are attending Promise Academy due to the leadership of the teachers and principal. The children are learning so much more than they did in Memphis City Schools. They enjoy attending Promise Academy because the teachers motivate them to learn and give them homework daily. They love going on field trips and when Mayor Wharton came to the school that was a highlight for my grandchildren. They are learning emotionally physically and academically. Keep up the great job you are doing in the lives of my grandchildren and the other students.
