In 2006, every first grader at King Elementary in Des Moines became a "dreamer" with our third and final cohort strategy. With this strategy, also known as the legacy model, we supported a small group of students throughout their entire academic careers, providing resources and programming to meet their needs in preparation for the future. As K-12 students, all King Dreamers had a dedicated mentor who invested time and compassion into supporting their success.
Our King Dreamers are now our King Graduates, having graduated from high school in the spring of 2018. They are currently pursuing postsecondary education and careers in a variety of fields.
