Powerful Partnerships Supporting Baltimore City Students

“I enjoyed working every single day. This has been the best job that I’ve ever had. Middle Grades Partnership’s freedom as a director and teacher allows for meaningful moments in the classroom each day, teaching things that the students see value in.”

Evaluation

This year, as in the past, we will use program impact surveys from students, parents, and staff. We will collect and report on student outcomes including high school acceptances, school year attendance, student comp scores, student grades, summer attendance and retention, and student tracking through high school graduation. We are investigating using MAP testing scores to confirm actual summer learning gains from Spring to Fall. Initial results are extremely promising.

In this way, we will be able to engage each of our partnerships in individualized continuous improvement cycles and coaching, along with monitoring of program satisfaction from multiple sources and student outcomes. This is a development about which we are very excited.

Middle Grades Partnership increases opportunities for academically promising Baltimore City public middle school students through public and private school partnerships.
