Far too many children across America, particularly those in low-income communities, face substantial barriers to educational success. Elev8 was a full-service community school model that helped connect students and families to much-need services—including healthcare, educational enhancement programs, and family economic supports—to help address those barriers. Since 2008, with the support of the Atlantic Philanthropies, Elev8 models have been used in a diverse group of high need, underperforming middle schools in New Mexico, Oakland, Baltimore, and Chicago. This report, the final national evaluation of Elev8, details the key findings and lessons learned from this initiative.
