After one school year as a High Impact Partner, The Young Women’s Leadership School of The Bronx recently had approximately 1/3 of their 10th graders take the English Language Arts Regents early. One hundred percent of these students passed the exam, and most students received in the 80s and 90s. One student received a score of 99!

"The growth we have seen in our students writing has been unbelievable. When we saw our standardized test results, we knew this was clearly a result of partnership this year."

Devon Eisenberg, Principal

"TWR was really helpful for my struggling students and particularly my English Language Learners. It gave them the structure they needed to help them communicate more effectively. I noticed a lot of improvement in the quality and length of short responses and essays."

Julissa, Literacy Teacher

"TWR has transformed writing in our school. It’s absolutely fantastic."

Matt, 8th Grade Social Studies Teacher
