Shining new facilities and a fresh curriculum, The Rise School of Austin, a school dedicated to individualized and integrated learning programs, spearheads an advancing movement for an increasingly integrated learning environment. Aimed at highlighting the individualism in their students, the school encourages them to be constructive leaders and team members in their classes. The staff reflects the passion and ambition of the institution by closely working hands-on with the students, often personalizing each student’s program to fit his or her needs. Although the school specializes in more delayed, developing children, the school seeks to expand their potential student enrollment to children of all learning levels.
In order to have their goals and mission expressed, the UT PRSSA Philanthropy Committee has aided in behind-the-scenes communication efforts, especially redesigning their website content. The website had plenty of difficult jargon to decipher, but in collaboration with the liaisons of the school, the committee helped produce a user-friendly website with easy-to-understand content. The new content effectively communicates the atmosphere the school is set it and concisely details an array of events hosted at their facility, which involve the community and the students.
One of the primary goals of the committee is to teach students realistic communication skills that will help them become effective and efficient leaders in each of their future fields. Although the committee was unable to make the deadline for the volunteer application for the school events this past semester, the committee hopes to volunteer at future events next spring in order to bring more publicity to the school and its programs.
