Issue

Only 53% of young people in America's 50 largest cities graduate from high school on time. Twenty-five U.S. school districts produce 1/5 of all U.S. dropouts. Broward is one of them. Research tells us that middle school is a fork in the road for school and graduation success or failure.

Our Goal

School is Cool aims to increase high school graduation rates to 90% by focusing on middle school success.
