YES Prep Southwest Pairs Access with Supports for AP Success

The Education Trust released a case study on YES Prep Southwest and Alhambra High School in Los Angeles County, which highlights the schools' exemplary track records of creating access and ensuring success on exams for low-income students. 

“The inspired leaders highlighted in this brief have two things in common. First, they see past the outdated assumptions that students of color are less capable of AP level work than their White peers. Second, when they create opportunities for their students to enroll in AP classes, they also create schoolwide support programs that enable both the teachers and the students to successfully transition to the rigors of AP coursework,” said Ashley Griffin, interim director of P-12 research at The Education Trust and a co-author of the brief.
