Bringing Student and Teacher Success to Scale

Grade: 6-8

Whitelaw Reid Academy is a middle school with 180 students from grade 6 through 8. The school serves a high poverty community in the Bedford Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn. The school faced the challenge many New York City schools were facing in that the majority of entering 6th graders were reading well below grade level. The principal saw an urgent need to put in place professional learning and systemic support for her teachers to ensure all students leave middle schools with the literacy skills they need to succeed in high school.
