What's New

SHARP allows students to look not only at themselves, but others.
My students not only improve their reading and writing skills, they also become more confident learners.
While SHARP’s impact is often felt by students who are struggling, it also fits the needs of high achievers.
The SHARP Literacy program not only has the needed content, but also fun ways of approaching these concepts!
I’m indebted to SHARP because not only do you grow my students but you’ve grown me as an educator.
Our students learned so much about their community and have a profound new appreciation for Milwaukee.
