"Astounding" growth

Hawking STEAM Charter School students take the NWEA MAP assessment three times a year. During in-school learning, the school anticipates an average of four points growth per trimester. 

This trimester, my students had an average of 12.6 points growth–3X the target. This is especially astounding because the growth was even across high, middle, and low-performing students—only students with poor attendance had lower scores. Students’ scores were up across areas, including vocabulary, literature, and nonfiction. All this is particularly impressive as most students are ELLs.

Build stronger teachers

Welcome to an entirely new approach to improving instruction.

Together with their same-grade peers nationally, teachers work in sustained partnership with award-winning mentors. Watch their mentor’s moves. Make them their own. See their students soar.

“It was not like a normal summer school at all.”

Harvard and University of Virginia scholars found that students in NSSI last summer improved their academic skills and gained confidence.

I honestly felt like all of my kids, they improved. Pretty much across the board they all said, I read differently now. And I pay attention to what I read. And I'm going to be thinking about what I read and what it means for my life.
