Equal Opportunity Schools brings equity to AP and IB.
We collaborate with school districts to increase equitable enrollment in Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) classes, so more students can excel.
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 540 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.
EOS is headquarters 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. Unfortunately, students of color and low-income students 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 36,000 (and counting) students of color and low-income students—among active partners—succeed in rigorous academic programs.
Let’s close the AP/IB gap together.

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
