MYERS-WILKINS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Young Scholars is a program used to identify gifted and talented students. It's in a pilot phase this year due to the pandemic.
“It’s like Christmas to these kids,” Cortnie Bain, coordinator of the Duluth Community School Collaborative Youth Development Program, said.
In the Duluth school district, some elementary schools and high school classes are overcrowded, mostly in eastern Duluth, while others are underutilized, mostly in western Duluth. As in many U.S. cities, socioeconomic and racial achievement disparities have a geographic correlation. Minnesota, the Duluth district included, has one of the nation’s highest education achievement gaps.
Myers-Wilkins Elementary School received more than $21,000 in donations for Books for Kids, a literacy project that will give every student a free new book every month for nine months.
