PLAINFIELD, NJ - On Wednesday, March 14, 2018 the Queen City Academy Charter School (QCACS) participated in National School Walkout Day. This nationwide protest is both a memorial and protest action. Students and teachers across the United States walked out their schools this morning to honor the lives of the 17-people killed at Stoneman Douglas and apply pressure on lawmakers to pass stricter gun control laws. The protest was organized by EMPOWER, the youth branch of the Women’s March.
“Today was not the conclusion but the start of scholars knowing their voice is powerful,” said Danielle West, Chief Academic Officer.
QCA provides a solid academic program and has been educating scholars in the city of Plainfield for 17 years. It is with the support of community members that it exists and thrives in making the school a viable option for parents and scholars searching for a quality education. QCA teaches classes from kindergarten to 8th grade. Through independent and collaborative learning, QCA aims to help their students develop self-esteem, self-discipline, emotional independence, respect for the environment, responsibility, respect for everyone, and academic independence
