Twice the Rate of Learning Growth

Dr. Richard Arum, Professor of Sociology and Education at New York University, was awarded a $2.4 million MacArthur grant to study the development of 21st century skills in students at Quest to Learn and several other schools.

Preliminary results indicate that Quest to Learn 8th–10th graders demonstrate twice the rate of learning growth as college students in critical thinking, problem solving, analytical skills, and written communication.
