On April 7, the Alliance for Excellent Education and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) held a briefing on Capitol Hill to discuss the role of school leaders in ensuring that all students leave high school ready for success in college, careers, and civic life.

The MetLife Foundation–NASSP Breakthrough Schools project identifies, showcases, and recognizes middle and high schools that are high achieving or dramatically improving student achievement while serving large numbers of those students most at risk of dropping out. M.O. Ramay Junior High School (Fayetteville, Arkansas) and Worcester Technical High School (Massachusetts) are recognized by the Breakthrough Schools project as schools that have exemplified the core areas of collaborative leadership, personalization, and access to a rigorous and differentiated curriculum for all students.

The Alliance for Excellent Education is a Washington, DC-based national policy and advocacy organization that works to improve national and federal policy so that all students can achieve at high academic levels and graduate from high school ready for success in college, work, and citizenship in the twenty-first century.
