A publication of the California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) released this month states that, Alliance schools achieve some of the highest graduation and college ready rates in LA and consistently outperform local traditional district schools.
This publication also highlights Alliance Marc & Eva Stern Math and Science High School, in East Los Angeles, which has alumni attending more than 140 different colleges and achieves a graduating rate of 93%.
CCSA also published these key findings:
• In Los Angeles, the percentage of high school graduates who completed all college preparatory coursework is 4 times as high at charter public schools as it is at traditional district schools.
• Charter schools graduate high school students at higher rates than traditional district schools - 79% versus 66% for traditional schools.
• Charter schools are closing the achievement gap for high school students who have historically been left behind by the system.
