First, we award some of the nation’s highest performing urban schools. After an extensive review of student data, followed by comprehensive on-site visits, we identify typical urban public and public charter schools that achieve impressive results for every demographic group of students.
Second, we conduct a national symposium during which we celebrate our award winners and highlight their best practices. Our symposium is a special conference for all urban educators focusing on America’s best urban schools. In 2017, the Symposium will be held in Nashville, TN on May 15th through 17th.
Third, we provide intensive support programs to urban schools and districts that are eager to emulate the best practices of America’s best urban schools.
