Mission Statement

Tampa Street School is dedicated to the belief that a quality education is the most effective way of transforming many disenfranchised members of our society into productive citizens. We believe that education is a quest for intellectual development, an opportunity for personal growth, and the path for the fulfillment of each individual's unique path.

Description

The Lord spoke concerning the downtrodden, lost hopeless and helpless youth of today. He said, "Give counsel, execute judgement, make your shadows like night -- in the midst of the day. Hide the outcasts, do not betray the wanderers!" (Isaiah 16:3) Many teenagers have lost their dreams for the future -- plans they once had. They roam the streets of failure, trying to find something and someone real. They ask questions like "Who am I?", "Why am I here?", "Where did I come from?", "Where am I going?". Sad to say, they are prey -- for drug pushers, gangs, deviates and the likes. T.S.S. walks in unconditional love. We brush off the dirt, pray over the bruises, and help the children find the lost key to unlock their hearts' prison doors. We hide them in the Word of God to set the captive free. The stained and dirty rocks become precious diamonds... and failure turns to victory. Students who have been told that they would never read or graduate see success in their lives as they walk down the aisle to receive their high school diplomas. Once again, their dreams surface, and they begin to soar as leaders of tomorrow.
