Tacoma Weekly — My son is happy and set to succeed in school

Charter or not, that’s all that matters to me as Mom

By Imelda Santana, parent at Destiny Middle School


When it comes down to it, all parents want the same thing: the best for our kids. And when given the option, we will choose to send our kids to a good school that will partner with us and help them succeed.

My family fell in love with Destiny Middle School in Tacoma’s Eastside neighborhood when we first visited. All my co-workers and friends had been excitedly talking about the new local school that had been reaching out to the community and getting to know local families. I got one of their flyers at the Boys & Girls Club where my son spends a lot of time, and I just had to go see what all of the buzz was about.
