Seattle Mayor-elect Bruce Harrell has named Equal Opportunity Schools Interim CEO Eddie Lincoln as one of our four co-chairs that will lead his transition efforts. “Having leadership at the top that accurately reflects our communities is what is needed to ensure all voices are heard, and the best outcomes are reached,” Eddie shares. “It is my honor to help lead and organize this effort.”
We collaborate with school districts to increase equitable enrollment in rigorous courses.
Equal Opportunity Schools’ mission is to ensure that students of color and low-income students have equitable access to America’s most academically intense high school programs and succeed at the highest levels.
Our partnership model is consultative, collaborative, and requires a commitment to specific and measurable results. Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS) has helped more than 600 schools identify students of color and low-income students who qualify for, but are missing from Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) classes. Working together, we successfully enroll them and support their academic success.
EOS is headquartered in Seattle, Washington and continues to hire professionals to support our growing portfolio of partner districts.
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, but do not have equitable access to these courses. These students are disproportionately students of color and low-income students. We help schools identify and remove barriers to equitable access.
Access to AP/IB has a lasting impact.
We know that participation in rigorous courses is correlated with future academic outcomes. Tackling the equity gap will require creating equitable access to these courses.
That’s why we’re here.
Equal Opportunity Schools has worked with schools coast-to-coast to help tens of thousands of students of color and low-income students enroll in rigorous academic programs.
