  • LeBron James Opened His ‘I Promise’ Public School In Akron

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers dribbles down the court in the third quarter against the Brooklyn Nets during their game at Barclays Center on March 25, 2018 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. Now, the day is finally here and kids are pouring into I Promise for the first time. The Akron school will expand each year, adding second and fifth grades next year and will have students from grades 1-8 by 2022.

According to the Los Angeles Times, James' foundation was the top donor towards the construction of the school and worked with Akron Public Schools to meet all standards and regulations. And with his son now making waves in the high-school basketball scene it seems the NBA star is eager for James jr.to carve his own path.

Since inking his four-year, $153 million deal to join the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this month in free agency, he has yet to truly address the move in any extended capacity.

"For me to be in this position, the excitement that I have to be a Laker, I'm happy to be a part of it because I believe the Lakers is a historical franchise; we all know that".


The foyer of the I Promise School features two walls that bookend the main staircase.

Monday's grand opening was expected to be the time James would make his first public remarks since signing with the Lakers. I rode the same bikes on the streets that they ride on.

James went on to talk a bit about the school's mission, and he praised Akron in doing so. "I went through the same emotions - the good, the bad, the adversity, and everything that these kids are going through". They noted that he really liked L.A.'s young players and cap situation moving forward in addition to his connecting with Magic and respecting the franchise's legacy.
