Over a two-year span, this Northern Illinois High School, in partnership with Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS), expanded their AP program by 20%. Elliana entered 10th grade at this Northern IL High School believing that her current courses weren’t challenging enough. The EOS/high school partnership provided the encouragement that Elliana needed and a staff member recommended Elliana for an AP class that same year 🎉.
As an incoming 10th grader in the Atlanta Metro School District, Dora was concerned that her courses weren’t challenging and wanted to take upper-level courses. The Atlanta metro school district where Dora attends school has been in a partnership with Equal Opportunity Schools for two academic years. In that time, the district has expanded its AP program enrollments by 20 percent! 🎉 We will always strive to show our partner students their true potential.
Dr. Nick Wahl of Equal Opportunity Schools will present a session at the Education Active Summit, sponsored by the Education Activism Collective. The summit will teach strategies on shifting the narrative of education today. Join Dr. Wahl’s session on Wednesday, June 23, at 10 AM PDT.
Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month by paying tribute to Yuji Ichioka, an American historian and civil rights activist best known for his work in Asian American studies. As an adjunct professor, he coined the term “Asian American.” Ichioka helped establish the Asian American studies program at UCLA, and with his wife, founded the Yuji Ichioka and Emma Gee Endowment for Social Justice and Immigration Studies at UCLA’s Asian American Studies Center.
Join us in honoring Yuji Ichioka by leaving a tribute on our social media channels @EqualOppSchools.
