• Harambee is a Swahili word that means "let's pull together!" It is a daily event where scholars, staff, visitors, and parents unite to celebrate each other, get energized by chants and cheers and positive affirmations, and the Motivation Song: "Something Inside so Strong" encourages and builds self esteem in preparation for a positive learning experience.
