Academic Teaming Academy Helps Any School Thrive

William D. Moseley Elementary School in Putnam County, Florida, was historically a low-performing school, but always had the potential for greatness, though the school faced a difficult journey.

After two years of intensive work, focusing on Academic Teaming implementation, Moseley transcended from an "F" school to a "C", and even more so a school where other parents are eager to enroll their children. It was the first time the school had earned a "C" in nine years.

Moseley's Grade Increased 16%

In two years, Moseley increased from a "F" to a "C" school letter grade. This equates to moving 16 percent points from a 28% (F < 31%) to 44% (C > 41%)
