Direct Instruction School Partnerships
Public High School in Manhattan
A-List is thrilled to have partnered with a number of schools to provide an array of direct instruction services. Learn more about our school partners below:
Through the generous funding from Metropolitan Realty Group A-List was able to run a 24-hour SAT prep course for seniors at Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School over their Summer Bridge Program. FLHFHS is a performance based assessment, community school in partnership with Children's Aid Society. The program was so successful that A-List will be continuing our work with the seniors in fall, and then will begin to work with their junior class in the spring of 2015.
- Fannie Lou students improved an average of 116 points on the SAT after A-List's 24 hour SAT course.
Starting in 2013, A-List expanded its partnership with the Harlem Children's Zone. Our expert teachers work side-by-side with Promise's faculty to provide teacher's assistance in the classroom as well as small group tutoring. Classroom assistance ranges from ELA, Integrated Algebra, Geometry, and Earth Science.
A-List is proud of its continued partnership with Institute for Collaborative Education. Since 2012, A-List has supplemented I.C.E.'s curriculum by providing SAT prep courses taught by our expert teachers inside the school day.
- Our winter 2012 I.C.E. students had an average SAT score improvement of 190 points.
- Our spring 2013 I.C.E. students had an average SAT score improvement of 225 points.
“My teacher was super awesome. You guys should work in more schools; you have this down to an art.” -Student, I.C.E. SAT Course
Since 2012, A-List has partnered with Democracy Prep’s administration to provide SAT and ACT prep to their junior class. To supplement our direct instruction, we also provide professional development to Democracy’s Prep’s faculty. By 2013, Democracy Prep teachers worked side-by-side with A-List’s expert educators to provide a refresher SAT and ACT course in the fall to their senior class, and then an intensive SAT prep course for their junior class ending for the March SAT.
- Democracy Prep's 2013 class had an average ACT score improvement of 2.2 points.
To supplement A-List's ongoing SAT professional development with Manhattan Hunter Science High School, we started providing small group tutoring in the spring of 2014. Small groups of no more than 5 students meet weekly afterschool with A-List’s instructors to reinforce lessons and core concepts.
