Success Academy, the largest and highest-performing charter school network in New York City, is pushing the envelope when it comes to the education of the city’s disadvantaged children.
Success Academy has shown they are willing to take a firm stance against what they see as lowering of their high standards of education. They recently won an uphill battle, in the appellate court, against the city regarding their pre-K program. By doing this, they show us that a high-quality education even from a young age must be demanded. Winning this battle to educate in a manner that Success Academy feels is the most beneficial for its students is one reason that makes them an example for schools across America.
All this care for students can only translate into the students’ success, and it has. The majority of students at Success Academy are either from low-income families or are children of color. These two groups, in general, are said to perform at a lower academic level than their white, or well-off peers. However, in the case of Success Academy’s elementary and middle schools, they have outscored their peers in math, science, and English, and rank in the top ten percentile.
Success Academy shows us a model in which, when given equal opportunity for success, there is no difference between one child and the next. Education is the great equalizer, and this is especially true in America. We are told to work hard, and everything you ever wanted can be yours if you just put your all into it. Unfortunately, there are still places in the inner cities of America where this is still a myth, because of societal norms. For that reason, Success Academy will release a digital platform showcasing its design for learning, so that every child across America can have an equal opportunity for the success they deserve.
