Description

Equity and Excellence for All

Empowering Students on Their Paths to Success


About the School

Queens High School for Information and Research (QIRT) is a Title I high school located in the Far Rockaway neighborhood of Queens. This small, student-centered learning community is committed to providing a challenging academic program for students of diverse backgrounds, achievement levels, and interests. The school creates a positive learning environment attuned to the mental, physical, and emotional needs of their students, parents, and surrounding community.


About the Visit

At this Showcase, visitors will learn how QIRT applies an equity lens to college access and readiness. For the school, this involves knowing every student and meeting their individual needs to ensure access is given to all students. Visitors will learn about the individualized college and career plans that prepare students for college and beyond. Additionally, visitors will learn about their instructional approach to "vertically aligned curriculum" to ensure all students can successfully matriculate through high school and pursue post-secondary options. At the end of the day, visitors will have an opportunity to plan how they can translate and adapt these practices into their own work.
