Last week, the Stanford University Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) named Alliance as a “gap busting” school system in the release of their 2023 report, the third installment of a series of national studies on the academic progress of students enrolled in charter schools compared with the progress of students enrolled in traditional public schools.

In a recent article about the report by Ed Source, a national education weekly, they also highlighted Alliance schools as one of the 32 California charter management organizations whose average achievement exceeded the state average, and whose historically disadvantaged students showed growth that was strong or stronger than their non-disadvantaged peers in the same schools.

“When compared with similar students in district schools, students in Los Angeles-based Alliance College-Ready Public Schools gained the equivalent of 107 days in additional learning, about 40% of a year.”


CREDO, the Center for Research on Education Outcomes at Stanford University, aims to improve empirical evidence about education reform and student performance at the primary and secondary levels. CREDO at Stanford University supports education organizations and policy makers in using reliable research and program evaluation to assess the performance of education initiatives. CREDO’s valuable insight helps educators and policy makers strengthen their focus on the results of innovative programs, curricula, policies, and accountability practices.
