Excellence for All
Excellence for All (EFA) is a Boston Public Schools initiative that helps schools expand access to 21st Century learning experiences for students in grades 3-6. EFA provides school leaders and teachers with the resources needed to support each child's unique path to success. At the end of each year, students in EFA schools present research projects at our Annual Showcase. In the 2018-2019 school year, EFA will expand to include 3 new middle schools in efforts to further expand access to quality education for families in Boston.
- Capstone Research Project (multidisciplinary, student-centered, and student-led)
- Interventions for improving literacy and social emotional learning and wellness.
- Scholars Program (ISEE exam prep, executive function classes, and parent workshops)
- STEM coursework (coding, robotics and 3D printing for grades 3-6)
- World language coursework (Spanish, French, Mandarin)
- Ongoing direct coaching to ensure instruction is rigorous, personalized, culturally relavent, and enriching.
- Support in improving student writing and literacy.
- Support in addressing the needs of English Language Learners and students with disabilities
- And more!
