Who we are:

Uniting4Kids is a catalyst for coordinating the capabilities and resources of teachers, parents and students to inspire the highest levels of intellectual thought, freedom, and equity in education.  We represent a more holistic and inclusive approach to learning, one that respects the rights of communities, honors children, and enables parents and professionals who serve them to play a vital role in shaping our neighborhood schools.
