Make Every Child's Potential a Reality
When you join PTA, you take a step toward improving your child's education. You join millions of members across the nation who believe that our future lies in the hands of today's youth. We all want to see our children succeed, and studies have shown that being involved in your child's education is key to achieving that goal. Grades and test scores improve and self-esteem grows.
When legislators meet to discuss public education, PTA numbers speak volumes about advocating for change in our school systems. Successful students are everyone's business, and when students succeed, communities benefit.
