The Success For All Middle School: Third Year Evaluation Report
Daniels, Cecelia; Madden, Nancy A.; Slavin, Robert E.
Success for All Foundation
The Success for All Middle School was designed to help middle grades educators implement the most important elements of Turning Points and to add well-structured curricula, instructional methods, and professional development for teachers to help students reach their full potential. The program is based on the Success for All elementary design, the most widely used and extensively evaluated of all comprehensive school reform models. However, the elementary model was totally redesigned to meet the very different developmental needs of young adolescents and the institutional realities of middle grades education. Third-year evaluation data show that this approach is having a substantial impact on students' reading achievement in most of its pilot schools.
