Mason and Jada Dickens attend the Soulsville Charter School in Memphis, TN. My oldest kids went to the zoned neighborhood middle school a few years prior, and I knew we wanted to explore different options. The zoned middle school was underperforming and lacked after school programs.

My kids enjoy music, and it was very important to find a school that had a music program. Mason is a rising 11th grader and Jada is a rising 8th grader. I have watched them improve academically and socially. We all love their school because they are learning and exploring things they enjoy like singing and playing instruments.
