LeBron James, who founded the LeBron James Family Foundation in 2004, was in Akron with local leaders for an announcement Tuesday.
The foundation will be partnering with the Akron Public Schools to design a brand new school for the most at-risk Akron students. It will be called the I PROMISE School and will instruct children in first through eighth grades.
The school’s curriculum will include STEM, and what the foundation calls a “hands-on, problem-based learning focus with LeBron James Family Foundation’s “We Are Family” philosophy.” The goal is to support students and their families in and out of the classroom.
