Our Results

We measure student success based on three indicators: academic achievement, quality of student work, and evidence of engagement. We are developing tools to track student progress, so we can better assess our schools' performance—and our own.

Outperforming district averages on state and mandated tests

Schools implementing our model are consistently outperforming district averages on state and mandated tests. In many of our schools, students’ test scores exceed district averages by substantial margins, with particular success among black and Latino students.

Engaged in their own learning and in the world around them

Our model fosters more than just academic engagement and achievement. Beyond developing critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills, our students show leadership through civic engagement and social and environmental service. Our teachers and school leaders are equally involved in their schools and communities.
