After our hire within a school looking to improve their scores, our 2015 Common Core Assessment scores grew tremendously. In the school year prior to our hire there were only 17 scholars out of 79 who scored the coveted 3 or 4. After our hire 49 out of 114 scholars received this coveted score. That is over 288% growth! This growth transpired with the addition of 35 scholars on the grade. This was of the highest growth within their Network and was an unprecedented amount of growth. This was accomplished through experience, consistency and quality teaching among many obstacles. Since the inception of Stem and Leaf our scores have been equally as impressive throughout. It is Stem and Leaf’s goal to improve math scores all across the city.
