Introducing The Moonshot School at Vero Beach Elementary
At the start of the 2023/24 school year, The Learning Alliance opened The Moonshot School at Vero Beach Elementary.
The Moonshot School launched this fall at Vero Beach Elementary (VBE), one of our highest-needs schools. While VBE students are some of the most economically challenged students in our community, we know that if we can achieve 90% literacy there, we can achieve it anywhere. Together, with the School District of Indian River County, and your support, we are creating a demonstration school for best practices. This school is a hub for innovation, inviting educators from across our community and state to learn what it takes to ensure all children can read proficiently by the third grade and achieve the American Dream.
In 1962, John F. Kennedy inspired our Nation, establishing the Moonshot goal: to land a man on the Moon and safely return by the end of the decade.
“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” This Moonshot Goal is a challenge that “… we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.”
-President John F. Kennedy
