Narrowing the Achievement Gap
After four years in our program, the achievement gap in English Language Arts (ELA) for the Class of 2018 closed. Students outperformed the state average on the PARCC assessment in both 7th and 8th grade ELA.
Link students outperformed students in the school’s sending districts (Newark, Irvington, East Orange, and Orange) on the NJASK Science assessment for three years.
Closing the Opportunity Gap
Link works hard to place students in competitive high schools, and Link students have earned an incredible amount in academic scholarships and financial aid to make their enrollment in these schools possible.
