Unis School serves grades K-8 in the Dearborn Public School District. The school principal is Heyam Alcodray. These are its beliefs about education:
A student's highest potential includes improvements academically, artistically, emotionally and socially.
Student achievement requires a cooperative effort among parents, teachers and the community to provide encouragement and reinforce core values.
Good instruction is assessment-driven, outcomes-based, active, and engaging.
Effective instruction touches the world of each student providing for different learning styles and needs.
Education is a life-long process that prepares students to be successful, contributing citizens in a changing world.
This is one of three demonstration projects of AAJA's Executive Leadership Program. The others involve Chicago's ethnic media and a mobile news site in New York City's Chinatown. The Dearborn project is led by Emilia Askari and Joe Grimm.
