Our school system produces AP students who attend the Community College of Philadelphia and after taking placement tests are required to take development reading and math. Two years ago on the statewide PSSA science proficiency test, more than 65% of the 8th graders tested 'less than proficient' in science -- meaning that they could not function at grade level with regard to understanding basic concepts, calculations, and forms of problem-solving. For over 15 years, iPraxis has worked in both public and neighborhood charter schools with teachers and principals who want to enhance science proficiency and exposure to STEM concepts and careers. Each school has different levels of resources available for science learning to which iPraxis responds.
