We strive to ensure that each of our scholars reaches his or her highest potential, and strong academic performance is a critical indicator of our success on this front. As such, we use a multi-faceted assessment program to track student performance in our core subject areas. Assessments include standardized exams, curriculum-based tests and quizzes, and a plethora of formative measures including curriculum-based activities, writing journals, teacher observations and outputs from centers activities.
Our data-based approach enables us to provide each child with an educational experience that is tailored to his or her individual needs and gears him or her for success.
In our founding year, 9% of students in grades K-1 arrived reading on grade level. By the end of year one, 91% were on level and nearly 80% were reading above grade level.
In response to the extraordinary success of the first East Harlem Scholars Academy, East Harlem Scholars Academy II will open its doors in August of 2013.
