When Jounce began working with one district elementary school in Philadelphia, it was in the District's lowest performance tier. Today it is the 9th highest performing elementary school in Philadelphia and its kindergarten classes rank in the 95th and 99th percentile of District-wide student growth.
Two Washington, D.C. charter schools that have engaged Jounce have experienced similar acceleration. The schools ranked 1st and 3rd highest in student growth across the entire city, demonstrating how the Jounce model can work in differing academic systems and reap rewards.
Ultimately, the effect of introducing the Jounce model in schools and improving teacher quality leads to better student outcomes. For example, at a school where Jounce coaching was implemented in a select number of classrooms, we saw 65% of students exposed to teachers coached by Jounce make over a year of academic growth, versus 52% in classrooms teaching the same grade and/or subjects but without Jounce coaching.
