Since 2002, Meitler has had the privilege of partnering with Marist High School in Chicago. Together we completed three very distinct strategic growth plans (2002-03, 2007-08, 2015-16). Because of the work the following key objectives have been achieved:
- In 2002-03 the school transitioned from all-boys to coed and in 2005 met their enrollment goal increasing from 1,200 to 1,700 students; Marist also succeeded at integrating new technology into the curriculum and was able to update and expand the facilities.
- In 2007-08 the focus was on enhancing the Marist charism and strengthening Catholic identity as well as sustaining the enrollment of its 1800 students. The school integrated the “Understanding by Design” Framework in the academic program.
- In 2015-16 our work focused on assisting Marist in developing an enrollment management plan and updating and expanding the Science classrooms, locker and co-curricular areas of the building.
“Please do come and see our new science center. We hope to have a temporary certificate of occupancy by the end of June and permanent occupancy by mid or late July. It has been quite an experience and an education. I’m proud to point out that the seed for this project was planted in our most recent Meitler strategic plan.”
