Carol Appelbaum founded the Sugar Land Prep, middle and high school in 2009 inspired by her daughter a bright and hardworking student. SLP is a school where student like her daughter Ciara Appelbaum don’t want students to settle for mediocrity. “SLP coaches’ students as young as 6th grade to prioritize, set goals, take responsibility, to be self-respecting, take ownership of learning, and manage oneself in a manner that will create their success,” says. Appelbaum. Here are a few of SLP’s success stories that are inspirational.
