Accelerated Schools  
DEFINITION
  • Accelerated schools are dedicated to providing all students with enriched or “accelerated” educational experiences and seek to bring students who are in “at-risk” situations into the educational mainstream. Unlike some reform models, which address only curriculum change, the accelerated school model is a comprehensive whole-school reform that transforms both school culture and classroom learning environments.
