Natasha Hart has three children at Intown. She said her children have grown with the school in recent years.
“We’ve also gained a viable organization of motivated people who have become an extended family,” she said. “The Intown Academy charter program has been a triumph for us.”
The school’s 2013 College and Career Ready Performance Index score is below APS as a whole. But in 2013 the school met 89 percent of district student growth requirements, according to board records.
“I understand that we’ve been struggling academically, but we’ve been methodical in making adjustments,” Intown Principal Gene Dunn said.
