Success for All Featured on NBC's "Education Nation"


Success for All and partner elementary school Wells Academy in Steubenville, Ohio, were featured as an example of successful innovation in education during the NBC News 2012 Education Nation Summit. Since 2005, students at Wells Academy have maintained 100 percent proficiency on state reading assessments, and in 2011 Wells was the state's top elementary school. We are thrilled to be able to share one of the many Success for All success stories through "Education Nation's" national platform!
