Statement on Recent NY Post Articles on Washington Irving High School

You may have seen some articles recently in the NY Post accusing school administrators at Washington Irving High School of finding ways to raise grades for students in order to improve graduation rates.

These articles exemplify how necessary it is in a school district with a dismal 63% four-year graduation rate that we improve the school system the right way: addressing these issues while students are still freshmen, keeping students in school, and encouraging participation in education beyond graduation.

We hope that you continue to support Stride in its mission to improve graduation rates in troubled schools by providing scholarships during the freshman year and taking the fear of not being able to afford a college education off the table. Stride engages students by providing mentoring and support throughout our students high school years. Through your continued support, we can make a true difference in addressing the issues that impact graduation rates at their source.
