Double-digit Increases on State Assessment
Scores in Just Two Years

In 2014, in partnership with Learning Sciences International, a group of dedicated Minnesota schools became Demonstration Schools for Rigor. Supported by Learning Sciences’ coaching and professional development, these schools now function as cutting-edge educational laboratories.

In 2015, the first year of implementation, Princeton students’ reading scores increased by 5–10%, but that was just the beginning. Preliminary state assessment data for 2016 shows double-digit growth for 10th grade reading (an increase of 15.3%) and 8th grade math (an increase of 14.6%).
