Raising Teacher Expectations and Math Rigor: City Springs Elementary/Middle School


City Springs Elementary/Middle School has made improvements in reading and now wants to focus on improving math scores.


Starting with teacher observations, it was clear math instruction did not meet pacing or rigor expectations. Eurekii led a series of workshops that helped teachers understand the importance of pacing, raising expectations to include rigor, and building problem-solving and number sense skills. Teachers created goals and adopted strategies from the workshops.


NWEA scores in mathematics grew over 83.5% from 2022 to 2023. Over 48% of classes exceeded 100% projected growth in math for the year.
