We are pleased and proud to share the results of an in-depth, multi-year study by education experts at Stanford University: across the Commonwealth, and especially in urban areas like Boston, charter school students are consistently and significantly exceeding their district peers in annual learning growth.
The study’s findings mirror the impressive growth achieved by students at CCSC. In 2012, for example, CCSC students led the state in their average learning growth from 8th to 10th grade in both math and ELA. In fact, CCSC was the only public school in the state (charter or district) to earn a growth rate of over 80% in both subjects. CCSC also earned a national EPIC Silver Award in 2011-12 for outstanding learning growth.
Below is a press release from the Stanford group that summarizes the study’s key findings.
