Broad Foundation Shares Factors Behind Success of Uncommon Schools

The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation has released a study of the practices that have enabled Uncommon Schools, winner of the 2013 Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools, to graduate more than 90 percent of its students and see all its graduates admitted to college.

The report, Turning Urban Schools Into Springboards to College, examined how the network of public charters serving nearly ten thousand low-income African-American and Latino students in New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts has created a college-going culture. For example, all Uncommon School seniors take the SAT, and their average score in 2012 was higher than the college readiness benchmark set by the College Board.
