Quotes

"So every year, the district is saving more money in energy savings than it is spending to cover the cost" said Amoroso

"Unfortunately no mechanism in these contracts require charter schools to share that information," Ms. Banks said. "There is nothing in the state guidelines on how to do it."
When asked about the qualities that contribute to a successful school, Davies responded, "There are very measurable factors that contribute to these rankings — all valid in assessing success in a school; ones that we are proud of, and then there are the immeasurables: our 2014 valedictorian's speech centered on gratitude, our Honor Code which helps guide our students' character development, the ‘diploma-to-degree’ service program in which all seniors participated that linked MLHS students with children from the Boys and Girls Club of Newark. We are a school of academic excellence, but we also strive to empower our students to be good citizens, good sons and daughters, and generally, good people."
