Most subjects have two teachers in each classroom, plus additional learning specialists and gauges of how well students understand lessons. This allows students to learn each less in a way that’s tailored to their individual needs and ensures every student receives the support they need to excel.


Rise students have the opportunity to participate in over 30 extracurricular activities going on after school almost every day of the week. These programs focus on athletics, reading, the arts, technology and beyond, with tons of variety, from learning grappling to fencing team to book club!


Posters that celebrate student progress and achievement line every wall of Rise Academy. Our teachers make reading and math a fun and friendly competition, with recognitions like the Millionaire Club, which celebrate major milestones when students reach 1, 5 and 20 million words read.


Students enter Rise Academy in a variety of places. They all leave on the path to college. Over 50% of our kids enter Rise Academy below grade level. They typically leave 8th grade performing comparably to their peers across the state, not just in Newark.
