Equal Opportunity Schools brings equity to AP and IB.
We collaborate with school districts to increase equitable enrollment in AP and IB classes, so more students can excel.
Equal Opportunity Schools’ mission is to ensure students of all backgrounds have equal access to America’s most academically intense high school programs—and particularly that low-income students and students of color have opportunities to succeed at the highest levels.
Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS) has helped more than 450 schools identify low-income students and students of color who qualify for, but are missing from AP or IB classes. Working together, we successfully enroll them and support their academic success.
Three-quarters of a million high school students are ready to be enrolled.
Each year, approximately three-quarters of a million incoming juniors and seniors are ready to be enrolled in rigorous academic programs. Unfortunately, low-income students and students of color are not being engaged at the same rate as their peers. We help schools get them enrolled and ensure their success.
Access to AP/IB has a lasting impact.
Increasing the number of low-income students and students of color who enroll in rigorous classes leads to more of those students graduating and attending college. This is one of most resource-effective strategies for tackling the classroom equity gap.
That’s why we’re here.
Equal Opportunity Schools has worked with schools coast-to-coast to help more than 46,000 U.S. high school students—and counting—succeed in rigorous academic programs.
Let’s close the AP/IB gap together.
“My AP class has prepared me so much for the future. I used to be scared having to grow up and the thought of college work would be so difficult.
I had thought that AP classes were mostly for “smart people”, now I know it isn’t about being smart, it is about putting in the time and effort into the difficult things.” Underrepresented AP Student
