Bartlett High School Decreases Drop-Out Rate By More Than Half

SEATTLE, Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Anchorage School District recently announced that they have increased their graduation rate by more than 3.5 percent district-wide during the 2012-2013 school year.  In a recent article, "ASD Graduates More Students, Bartlett High Leads Way," written by Daysa Eaton of KSKA, Alaska Public Media, Bartlett High School is recognized as leading the way by bringing students back to school and supporting them in recovering credits required for graduation.  Apex Learning, the leading provider of digital curriculum for secondary education, is proud to be featured as making a critical contribution to Bartlett High School's success.

"We are incredibly pleased to see the measurable results students in Anchorage School District and Bartlett High School have experienced," said Cynthia Rogan, vice president of marketing for Apex Learning.  "We look forward to continuing our partnership with Anchorage School District as they continue their work to increase student achievement."

A key focus for Dan Gallego, principal of Bartlett High School, was to provide more learning opportunities for students by expanding the school's credit recovery program, making Apex Learning Comprehensive Courses available to students throughout the school day.  Their success demonstrates that the combination of visionary leadership, supportive teachers, and students engaged in a challenging, high quality curriculum provided by Apex Learning lead to increased academic outcomes.

The expanded learning options enable students to graduate on time.  "[Apex Learning] was very helpful because it was like a second chance to make up for mistakes of my freshman and sophomore year," said Brian Jones, a Bartlett High School graduate.
