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

The Kenny School receives $10,000 as finalist for Edvestors School on the Move Prize!

Of the 125 schools in Boston, the Kenny School was named 1 of 3 "School on the Move"  finalists based on a rigorous, multi-year quantitative screen of student achievement data as it compares to BPS schools serving similar grades. As a finalist, the Kenny School received $10,000 from EdVestors to support our continued success!

We congratulate the Harvard Kent Elementary School (K-5 Boston Public School in Charlestown) on winning this year's prize, and thank the governing board, host committee and sponsors for recognizing the incredible progress the Kenny School has made - and continues to make each year. We will never stop "moving" in service of our students, families and community. Thank you for your support!

More about the prize: 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.
