Our Mission and Vision

Mission Statement: Rapoport Academy focuses on serving economically disadvantaged students by
providing an exceptional education that prepares all students for college, career, and life.

Vision Statement: Rapoport Academy Public School fosters learning that exceeds national and state standards through rigorous academics, evidence-based practices, and real world experiences. We prepare students for college, career, and life by setting high expectations, modeling core values, and involving family and community.

As a premier educational model, we will continue innovating best practices to ensure students develop confidence, character, knowledge, and skills to reach their full potential, discover their passions, embrace diversity, and become independent thinkers.

Our History

Under the leadership of Dr. Nancy Grayson, East Waco Innovative School Development, Inc. was awarded a charter by the Texas State Board of Education in March 1998. The academy opened as a public charter school in the fall of 1998 with 16 students in East Waco, an economically depressed area of the city. Dr. Grayson founded the school in response to failing TAAS scores in 1998 among low-income, minority students in East Waco (30% of 3rd graders passed the exam while only 10% of 5th graders passed). Enrollment increased quickly to 32 students (Pre-kindergarten through 1st grades), filling the rented space in the basement of a church building. Enrollment for the second year was 74, requiring a move to a one-story building housing the Pre-kindergarten through 2nd grade student body.

Our Core Values

Everything we do at Rapoport Academy is guided by six core values: Respect, Responsibility, Curiosity, Creativity, Integrity and Hard Work. Staff and students are committed to these values, and they encourage one another to strive for them. Discipline and correction are done in reference to the core values, so that students will understand how their negative behaviors fail to exemplify the values we hold.
