- A middle school day from 8:00 am to 3:51 pm and a high school day from 7:30am to 3:00pm.
- A small school with a ratio of approximately 13 scholars for every teacher, strong administrators, instructional coaches, teachers, counselors, social workers, deans, morning aides and afternoon aides.
- An academic program with both advanced and remedial classes to meet the needs of all learners in order to close the achievement gap and prepare students for college and careers.
- A safe school. We concentrate on catching students when they do well and rewarding them when they meet our expectations.
- In addition to a rigorous academic curriculum, Equality also offers many after school sports including flag football, track, basketball, volleyball, step team, and cheerleading.
- The Success Principles Action Plan: students will actively identify their goals and plan action steps to reach them.
