When the Bar is Set High, Our Students Respond 10%  to 15% of our students re-enter public schools each year (exceeding the CPS benchmark)

  • About half of our high-school students hold jobs in our in-school work program
  • Nearly 30% of students are on the academic and attendance Honor Rolls
  • Many students see boosts to their KTEA-II Reading Achievement Test Scores
    • 87% of participating high school students increased total reading comprehension from 2014 to 2015  (If we include three additional students who tested but were already scoring at the highest level and so could not measurably “improve”, the percentage drops to 77%)
    • 95% of participating elementary students increased total reading comprehension from 2014 to 2015  (If we include two additional students who tested but were already scoring at the highest level and so could not measurably “improve”, the percentage drops to 91%)
