In one short year, our schools doubled, and in some cases, tripled the growth made by the city and the state in ELA and math.
At Explore Schools, we want our students to love learning and to be prepared to succeed in a college-preparatory high schools. While we don’t believe the State exams are the only measure of our students’ achievement, the annual New York State exams in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics are an important measure of what students know and are able to do – and an indicator that we’re heading in the right direction. That’s why we’re so excited that on the 2019 state exams, our network continued to make gains.
- In mathematics, we grew nearly 27 percentage points since 2017, placing our average proficiency above both districts we serve, the city, and the state.
- As a network, Explore Schools grew nearly 15 percentage points in ELA since 2017, keeping the network’s proficiency above both districts its serves (CSD 17 and 18).
