From the MaylandCan Report: (page 26)
Public high schools elsewhere have proven that it’s possible for our students to perform at higher levels. Across the country, there are non-entrance criteria public high schools proving that poverty doesn’t have to dictate outcomes. There’s so much we can learn from these success stories.
To drive this conversation, we set out to find high schools that are successfully serving large percentages of low-income students by breaking the link between poverty and low academic achievement. We sought out and accessed as much data as we could about high schools from around the country with high rates and that take the SAT has their primary test. We were only able to find 10 schools that serve similiar populations and do not have an entrance criteria. Among those, 9 of the 10 turned out to be charter schools. We examined the data, spoke to their leaders, and listened to their stories. At these schools, SAT scores are higher than they are at any non-entrance criteria high schools in Baltimore. College matriculation rates are higher. All these schools are getting so many things right. We can learn from their efforts, adapt and replicate what they do, and make Baltimore’s high schools as worthy of praise and accolades as those featured here. What follows are profiles of 10 schools that are beating the odds for kids from backgrounds similar to those of our students.
CONGRATULATIONS CROCKETT!!!! The comprehensive non-charter on the list!
