New York City Dept. of Ed. Gives Facing History School an “A”
A recently published report from the New York City Department of Education gave the Facing History School an “A” for excellence after evaluating areas including student progress, student performance, school environment, college and career readiness, and closing the achievement gap. This is the second time the Facing History School has received the highest possible rating.
The Progress Report Overview evaluates public schools in New York City and overall grades range from A to F. A new measurement of this year’s report was “college and career readiness,” an area in which the Facing History School excelled. This measure evaluates how well students are prepared for life after high school on the basis of passing advanced courses, meeting English and math standards, and enrolling in a post-secondary institution.
Facing History and Ourselves is the lead partner for the Facing History School, which opened in September 2005 and currently serves nearly 400 9th through 12th graders.
