I am not surprised to see such good ratings I went to school here in e palo alto, Ravenswood district. and my kids are in the
Tinsley program and they have learned so much more and are so smart in everything math, science, writing essays, socializing with different ethnicity all the things i didnt have growing up they know that if the study they will have a world of opportunity and because of the program its attainable. I was introduce to algebra in high school they got it in elementary, my daughter was in a science fair project and it was fun Ive learned a lot and meet so many people, of various educational and financial backgrounds its great. I support the Tinsley program who heartedly.....Go Tinsley!!!!!

I truly appreciate the study that Kendra Bischoff did of the Tinsley program. I have taught many kids who are a part of this program, and I think the value of it goes both ways - to students living within and outside of the receiving district.
I would love to read the study. Is there a way to do so?

Local Teacher - Ms. Bischoff told me that her study is not available to read at this time as she is still refining it and hopes to have it published as a book. We will try to let you know if that happens, as I'd like to read it, too!
