Achievement in Motion: Closing the Gap

Achievement in Motion: Closing the Gap

The San Mateo County Office of Education and our county's 23 local school districts are committed to ensuring and continuously improving the quality of learning and achievement for all students. We have launched a new way to showcase the great work that's occurring on a daily basis in schools throughout the county: Achievement in Motion: Closing the Gap (AIM).

Featured Schools: Capuchino High SchoolRalston Middle SchoolJefferson High School, and Parkway Heights Middle School


AIM will shine a spotlight on quality learning opportunities that are creating improved educational outcomes for historically underserved student groups in San Mateo County. Using various forms of media, we will share vignettes featuring districts, schools, programs or individual educators who are changing the equation for students by providing access to rigorous coursework and/or closing the gap between ethnic and socio-economic groups. Ultimately, the programs we highlight will successfully prepare students of color, English Learners and low-income students for success in school, college, and career.
