Equal Opportunity Schools is your partner in achieving equitable access to AP and IB courses in high schools across the country.

We are an equity and access advocacy organization, collaborating with school, district, county, state, and national leaders to increase equitable enrollment in AP and IB courses for students of color and low-income students, giving more students the opportunity to excel.

We are committed to enrolling students of color and low-income students in rigorous AP and IB courses.

Equal Opportunity Schools’ research and experience has shown that enrolling students of color and low-income students in rigorous AP and IB courses is one of the most effective and efficient ways of closing the achievement gap. Over the past several years, we have partnered with more than 600 schools 200 districts across 30 states, enrolling tens of thousands (and counting) students of color and low-income students—among active partners.

Our model is tested and effective.

The Equal Opportunity Schools program is a scalable, resource-effective means of closing the AP/IB access gap. Our tested model ensures that our partners are able to sustain success, even after our official partnership has ended. We are in this work for the long-haul because we believe in what’s possible for students across the country.

We collaborate with schools and districts to achieve proven results.

Student success is fostered through strong, collaborative relationships with our school and district partners. Our Partnership Directors and professional staff bring decades of experience in the work we do, but, ultimately, the success of our work belongs to the students, schools, and district leadership.
