The Teacher Academy of ESHS and its NPS sister school University have continued to work together since the 2019/2020 school year to ensure that Newark has a pathway for those children with a passion for teaching to become educators and advocates for social justice. The teacher academy is proud of its industry partner the AFT and its post-secondary institution partner MSU who meet monthly in order to reach tangible goals that layout a cohesive pathway for students to become teachers and eventually return to Newark as an employee.
Advisory meetings this school year 2020/2021 have consisted of reviewing the current 9th and 10th-grade curriculum and updating based on obstacles created by remote learning. Currently, the start of dual enrollment courses is projected for the Fall of the 2021/2022 school year. Students enrolled in their third year of the academy will start taking dual enrollment courses their Junior year of High School. The focus of our advisory board meetings moving forward is to ensure that we as an academy have dual enrollment course syllabi, schedules, data sharing agreements, and funds to support the next evolution of the academy.
