“Overall school climate became much more student oriented. Student growth was a major focus. DRIVE found a way to provide materials, advice and or strategies for students and teachers whenever it involved the growth of a student. Decisions about the school always included what was best for our students. Teacher morale immediately increased due to the new climate that DRIVE brought. Teachers were treated as professionals and were given opportunities to showcase their talents and skills to increase student achievement. DRIVE brought a sense of family to our school.”
