We collaborate with school districts to increase equitable enrollment in rigorous courses.
Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS) mission is to strengthen educator and system leader capacity to break down barriers to increase access, belonging, and success in rigorous college and career-prep secondary school courses for students of color and low-income students so that they may thrive in their postsecondary pursuits and life goals.
Our partnership model is consultative, collaborative, and requires a commitment to specific and measurable results. Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS) has helped nearly 800 schools 250 districts across 33 states 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.
