Because the the I Promise School has a longer school day and school year, more than 40 staff members have been recruited to accelerate the development of children who qualify for the program based on performance and socioeconomic factors. He sits down with @donlemon at the opening of his new elementary school for at-risk children in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.

There are additional benefits to attending the school, including receiving meals, such as breakfast, lunch, and a snack, for free.

LeBron James is committed to helping the people of Akron no matter where he plays basketball, and one of his biggest achievements officially became a reality on Monday.

"I think the missing link in public education is that family wraparound support", principal Brandi Davis told the Los Angeles Times.

The I Promise School's curriculum is centered around the foundation's "We Are Family" philosophy, an encompassing approach that allows for student growth and family development.


Although James is leaving after his second stint with the Cavaliers, Carrie believes his work in OH remains. "From that, we had more than 120 kids". I always felt like that was one of the historic franchises. Throughout the day, James spoke on his upbringing and how he is relatable to the students, saying how he rode the same bikes and walked the same streets at their age. "Across each wall is 114 of King James" game-worn sneakers that mostly span his past few seasons as a Cleveland Cavalier. And I was one of those kids so I know exactly what those kids today are going through being a part of this. I went through the same emotions.

On Sunday, James tweeted about his excitement for the school's opening.

James, who missed 83 days of school when he was in fourth grade, told ESPN he wants "to create an environment of family and not like a workplace".

In a video he released Sunday on his "Uninterrupted" Facebook page, James spoke about the connection he feels to the children of northeast OH, and the pride he feels in opening this school.

The fact that the school is only serving third- and fourth-graders has some added significance to James as well.
