Achieving Educational Excellence for African-American Male Students

  • Young black male at desk in classroom


    Educational systems throughout America are systemically failing African-American male students. Guilford County Schools is working to find solutions to this national dilemma. In the spring of 2011, the district launched the Achieving Educational Excellence for African-American Male Students project to focus efforts on improving the educational outcomes for African-American males. A project team of approximately 25 members was assembled representing district leaders, student support staff, principals, parents, and institutions of higher education. Working together, we will continue to strive for excellence and effectively support all African-American male students throughout Guilford County Schools.
