The Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools honors the public charter management organization that has demonstrated the best academic outcomes, particularly for low-income students and students of color.
The winner of the 2017 Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools is Success Academy Charter Schools in New York. Success will receive $250,000 to support college-readiness programs for its students. The other charter networks named to the top three are DSST Public Schools in Colorado and Harmony Public Schools in Texas.
First awarded in 2012, The Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools is designed to recognize the best practices of successful public charter management organizations so that all public school systems can learn from them.
