In the schools that serve students who live in Boston, a gap remains between the performance of African-American, Latino, and low-income students and their white, Asian and higher-income peers, particularly in math. TCP helps underperforming students succeed in math and boost their chances of completing a college education.
TCP by the Numbers
In addition, Orange County Public Schools had the highest percentage of students passing the algebra end-of-course exam after implementing TCP in 2017.
Investing in math support for students opens opportunities.
- Students gain confidence in their math abilities and thrive in strong peer and instructor-led cohorts that lead to academic achievement (including honors and AP-level math courses).
- Students build their identity as mathematicians and curiosity about STEM fields as they participate in our Pride curriculum and build on their sucess as students.
- Parents support of their child’s journey to academic success, participating in a journey of exploration and curiosity.
- Teachers gain satisfaction with their work and have more capacity to prepare students for honors and AP-level math courses.
- School districts can focus on closing opportunity and achievement gaps. They also benefit from partnerships with external stakeholders to support the program and STEM education in general.
- The world gains a better-prepared, inclusive future. We all benefit from access and opportunities for Black, indigenous, people of color, and low-income students.
