Vanguard offers a unique program to ensure students' academic achievement through advisory, enrichment, and remediation. School leaders, parents, and students work collaboratively to create engaging opportunities to develop the whole child. The Board of School Commissioners voted on January 11, 2022, to amend Exhibit 6 of the 21st Century Buildings Plan to extend the length of time the schools housed in the Thurgood Marshall Building remain in the building through the 2024-25 school year.
