Since Success Academy first opened up in the New York City area, they have seen their scores skyrocket. When they first started out, their scores were so much better than what other schools had during that time. They also saw a lot more success with the way that their students could learn thanks to the alternative approach that they had to teach students by allowing them the chance to truly explore what they were capable of through the use of different learning methods. Success Academy knows that test scores are not the most important factor of education but that they are important for judging the success that the school has had for the students. This is something that has made it easier for kids to be able to get the best education possible depending on the different circumstances that they are in. It has allowed them to get a great education.
Success Academy is able to operate like a private school despite the fact that it is in a public school system. Because it is a charter school, they can require students to wear uniforms and go to school for longer than the public schools do. This is beneficial to students. The longer days and years, in general, allow them to learn more during the time that they are in school. It has also given students the chance to make sure that they are held accountable for all of the different things that they are able to do. When students are able to make the most out of their education, they are also able to get more from it.
Teachers have smaller class sizes where they are able to teach students based on specific learning styles. The schools want to make sure that their students are successful so they do what they can to help them learn. Teachers can choose different approaches which allows each student to have a personalized learning plan. Public schools are not able to do this because they are usually at-capacity. Students have to compete with others just to get the teacher’s attention which makes it hard to learn.
