Schools of Opportunity

AISR Wednesday,December 2,2015

The National Education Policy Center seeks to identify and recognize excellent public high schools that actively strive to close opportunity gaps by engaging in practices that build on students’ strengths, thereby creating engaging and supported learning opportunities for all their students.

The Schools of Opportunity will serve as models, informing and inspiring the efforts of educators and communities throughout the US to become high schools that promote both excellence and equity.

You are invited to nominate your school. The application is open to any school serving at least grades 10 through 12. All schools are encouraged to apply, and we strongly encourage applications from schools serving communities of color and communities with higher rates of poverty.
