A Successful Year 1 Launch!

Opening a school during a pandemic is unimaginable.  However, FOREFRONT School started in 2020 while battling lockdowns, uncertainty, and adjustments. We are pleased to share that FOREFRONT School has successfully completed its first school year! FOREFRONT Charity believes quality primary education is critical not only for a child's future, but the community's future as well. Thus, despite lockdowns & restrictions, with the proper safety protocols, our staff provided lessons by visiting our students’ villages and homes. The reality is that in rural India, virtual learning does not exist due to lack of electricity, wifi, computers, etc. Our passionate teachers went above and beyond to bring excellent instruction directly to our students and their communities.

We have completed Year 1 of FOREFRONT School meeting our goals and standards, with 80%+ academic passing and 80%+ attendance rates during non-lockdown times.  We are now preparing for the 2021-2022 school year during another lockdown.  For Year 2, due to government lockdown rules, we will be implementing a hybrid model between in-person and at-home learning. 

Are you curious to know what our students learned this year? Below are just a few areas that every student learned in Year 1:

Kindergarten: 

  • Writing own name
  • Letter identification and writing for uppercase letters A-Z
  • Numbers 1-10 in order and randomized

Grade 1: 

  • Numbers 1-50 in numbers and words, in order and randomized
  • Identification: shapes and objects
  • Days of the week & months in a year 
  • Basic English communication, in questions and answers

Grade 2: 

  • Shapes, objects (oral and written)
  • Days of the week & months in a year oral and written
  • Written and spoken stories of self
  • Poetry

Giving Back to the Community

Our vision is to unite our school with our local community. We want our students to learn at an early age to give back to their communities. Our students each built their own garden and grew vegetables. After the vegetables were grown, they were distributed back to local families.

Our Pillars United

On March 8th, International Women's Day, our education team collaborated with our medical & empowerment team to launch a community event.  It was an "Iron Chef" with all the mothers in our school and ensuring that the food they created is healthy.  Alongside this competition, FOREFRONT Charity provided information on diabetes awareness & prevention.

We thank all of you for your continued support and hope to continue to partner with you as our school enters Year 2!
