Program Results

The Proof is in the Progress

Third-party evaluations have documented that the Pre-K 4 SA methodology provides a level of instructional quality that has long-term impact on student achievement. Research also shows that children who learn through the Pre-K 4 SA continue to reap educational benefits from the program for years after.

Proven and Lasting Results

The Year 6 independent evaluation of Pre-K 4 SA  and the Impact Study of Prekindergarten for San Antonio indicate the program is producing strong and lasting results and has a long-term impact on student academic achievement and engagement.

For the fourth year in a row, student outcome data demonstrates that Pre-K 4 SA helps students overcome gaps in kindergarten readiness. Research shows that children who attend Pre-K 4 SA end the year significantly above the national norm in cognition, mathematics, and language.

We Pass with Flying Colors

The success of Pre-K 4 SA is annually evaluated by Westat, Inc in conjunction with National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) and Rutgers University in New Jersey. Student outcomes are measured using the Teaching Strategies GOLD and literacy subtests of the Woodcock Johnson IV Test of Achievement. Every Pre-K 4 SA classroom is evaluated using the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS), a standardized measure of instructional quality.

The Urban Education Institute at UTSA conducted a study in August 2019, to examine the impact of Pre-K 4 SA on pre-kindergarten enrollment and its direct effects on the students who attended our educational centers in the academic year Fall 2013/Spring 2014.
