Thanks to a partnership between REAL School Gardens, The Real Estate Council’s Associate Leadership Council, Chase, and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, the children of J.P. Starks Math, Science and Technology Vanguard and Esperanza “Hope” Medrano Elementary School will soon have brand new learning gardens to grow and succeed.

REAL School Gardens is a nonprofit organization that partners with high-poverty elementary schools to build learning gardens and train teachers to help students succeed academically. Partner schools have seen standardized test score pass rates jump 12-15%, and increases were particularly noticeable in Science.
