Lessons from Boston’s most improved high schools

EARLIER THIS YEAR, Mayor Michelle Wu and Boston Public Schools Superintendent Mary Skipper shared their vision for BPS high schools. In addition to upgraded facilities, the vision focuses on three key strategies: academic rigor, college and career pathways for all, and partnerships. There are high schools across the district focused on these key strategies that can provide examples to learn from for those dedicated to advancing educational outcomes. 

Each year, EdVestors recognizes the most improving schools in BPS through the School on the Move Prize which grants $100,000 to the winning school and shines a spotlight on what’s working in the district. This year’s finalists – Boston Green Academy, Fenway High School, and the prize winner, East Boston High School – are focused on delivering challenging academic coursework, expanding access to career connected learning and pathways, and leveraging partnerships to provide a quality high school experience. 

In an op-ed for CommonWealth Beacon, Marinell Rousmaniere reflects on the three strategies shared among some of Boston's most improving high schools. Read the full story here.
