Our Four Anchor Goals
Each of our anchor goals helps to define a high-quality school system. They underscore our belief that all students can achieve, and they focus our work to ensure that we are creating great schools in every neighborhood.
Our goals are set at 100% because every child deserves a high-quality education.
