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.

Student iconThree-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.

Graduation iconAccess 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.
