Overview

In the 2008-09 academic year, Elm City College Preparatory Middle’s fifth-graders were the first students in the network to have graduated from an Achievement First elementary school and moved up to an Achievement First middle school. While incoming fifth-graders had historically averaged two years below grade level, many of these students were more than a full year ahead. Elm City College Preparatory Middle boasts a “warm demanding” culture, where respect, teamwork and hard work are the platinum standard.
