Helping Struggling Freshmen Transition to High School

Commitment by

Classroom, Inc.

In 2012, Classroom, Inc. committed to expand and enhance its Transition to High School (TTHS) program for the 2012 school year to reach 2,000 ninth graders in New York City public schools and other major U.S. urban school districts. TTHS helps incoming freshmen from disadvantaged backgrounds make the connection between school and work in order to support academic gains, avoid summer learning loss, and accelerate learning. Aside from academic lessons, students learn proper workplace conduct, business ethics, teamwork, and how their academic and employment decisions affect their communities and peers. The program will serve 1,000 struggling, low-income high school students through the original TTHS curriculum and will also expand to support an additional 1,000 students, who will work with a new program, The Sports Network-2 (TSN-2), a highly innovative digital learning game specifically to addresses the Common Core State Standards.
