When low test scores demanded a hard look at the curriculum, literacy became a focus for improvement at Brockton (MA) High School. Schoolwide training for teachers and a rolling implementation model ensured consistency and reinforcement of the skills. Results came in improved scores and national recognitions, including selection as a National Model School by the International Center for Leadership in Education, two bronze medals on the "U.S. News and World Report's" America's Best High Schools rankings, and acknowledgment by Harvard University's Achievement Gap Institute for closing the gap. Brockton has become a national model for student achievement and will work hard to continue its success. (Contains 1 figure.)
