The Kenny School is recognized as 1 of 3 finalists for the $100,000 Edvestors School on the Move Prize!

Each spring, EdVestors invites a select group of Boston public schools to apply for the School on the Move Prize based on a rigorous quantitative screen of student achievement using historical and current state standardized assessment data. The criteria identify schools with improvement that is substantially higher than their peers’ in one or both core subjects (English Language Arts and Math), as compared to BPS schools serving similar grades, with additional criteria related to school performance, student demographics, and graduation rates for high schools.

Typically, only 5-10% of schools each year meet the eligibility criteria and receive invitations to apply for the Prize.

The prize will be announced and presented in October in front of an audience of Boston’s leaders in education, the nonprofit sector, philanthropy, and business.
