The Walking School Bus was founded 3 years ago.
Our journey started through the realization that students travelled great distances to get to school. While searching for solutions to this problem of Access, we learned that once students would arrive at school, they often did not have adequate access to Nutrition, a prerequisite for education. Finally, while working in the classrooms, we discovered many rural communities which lacked resources to teach effectivley, this hurt student fluency, the number one predictor of academic success and we started working to improve Curriculum through our SiMBi Reading Application and Solar-powered Classrooms.
Our three-prong holistic approach of Acess, Nutrition, and Curriculum starts with rigorous research. Which is why Business Insider appreciates our sustainable School Bus Model and why Anderson Cooper thinks our Reading Program is so powerful!
