LeBron’s ‘I Promise School’ Speaks Out After Every Eight Grader Failed State Math Test


The I PROMISE school is providing high quality education to hundreds of underprivileged inner-city children, since being opened by NBA Superstar LeBron James in 2018.

But earlier this week, we reported about how not a single one of the I PROMISE school’s 8th grade students passed the state’s math test since the group was in the third grade.

Now, a spokesperson of the school is addressing the backlash.


“When we started this work to wraparound students through education, we entered this partnership with Akron Public School for the long haul. Because this work requires a long-term commitment, hard work, and a lot of love and care. And that’s what we bring each and every day because the I Promise School is more than a school. We’re here for the ups and downs, and will continue to wrap around our students and their entire families so they can be successful in school and in life, no matter the challenges and obstacles that come their way.”
