In an urban area, providing a safe environment is essential for learning and teaching. The challenges that affect children from a variety of socioeconimic, culturally diverse and academically diverse backgrounds are issues that we in the Rees E. Price community are continually striving to overcome.
Stakeholders in the Rees E. Price Academy community remain conscious of the diversity issues that our children are facing. We develop, implement, and evaluate interventions that will narrow the academic gap between the various groups of students. Through quality instruction, high expectations and research-based teaching approaches, all students will achieve to the highest levels.
The students at Rees E. Price Academy will always be the centerpiece of our work as we continue to raise the levels of student engagement.

What is a Community Learning Center (CLC)?
Schools and the communities they serve are closely linked. Seldom does one succeed without the success of the other. That's why our CLCs support student achievement, enrich and revitalize communities, and maximize the community's return on their financial investment.
We are very proud to be a CLC and a neighborhood anchor. We strive to go beyond academics to focus on the whole child by serving as a hub for community services that are available to all students, their families and the entire community. We are able to offer a variety services thanks to the collaboration and support of our many partners and the committed community of East Price Hill.
