High Schools That Work
High Schools That Work is the nation’s largest school improvement initiative for high school leaders and teachers.
More than 1,200 HSTW sites in 30 states and the District of Columbia currently use the HSTW Goals and Key Practices to raise student achievement and graduation rates.
HSTW’s annual Staff Development Conference attracts thousands of educators each year for professional development. HSTW publications, case studies, site development guides and other materials help improve high school curriculum and instruction across the nation.
HSTW is nationally recognized for its effectiveness and has led to other SREB school improvement initiatives, including Making Middle Grades Work, which helps students make stronger academic transitions into high school, and Technology Centers That Work, which helps career and technical education centers improve student readiness for college and careers.
