CRESCENDO The culmination of a gradual increase of intensity or volume. At Fortune, we define Crescendo as the culmination of our instruction leading to SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium - State Testing) with a focus on reteaching and test prep.
Fortune School will open a new middle school in Elk Grove in Fall, 2020. The school will be named Fortune Middle School and will be co-located with Rex and Margaret Fortune Early College High School at a brand new campus we are building from the ground up. Construction is underway at the new campus which is located on the corner of Big Horn Boulevard and Bilby Road. We plan to have the new campus open Fall 2020 for grades 6-12. Stay tuned for updates about the new building!
Join the movement of teacher and school leaders ready to educate every child. To get started, attend an Information Session. Our staff will be on hand at these sessions to answer specific questions about programs, admissions and other aspects of the Fortune School of Education experience. You do not need to bring anything to these sessions. We will provide you with all required materials.
The expectation is that 100% of students in our charter schools will attend and graduate from a four-year university. Students enter each classroom through a door marked with the year they will graduate from a four-year university. Students and parents make annual college and university visits beginning in Kindergarten. Parents sign a contract committing to provide 40 hours of service to the school.
Whether you earn a credential through Fortune School, or teach in one of our charter schools, our leaders go above and beyond in the classroom with their students. Fortune School's leaders make that choice and commitment to do whatever it takes to ensure that all students succeed.
