BES schools with impressive academic results, enviable organizational practices, and proven ability to close the achievement gap are now recognized and celebrated as members of the Excellent Schools Network.  Study the two newest members of the Excellent Schools Network – Endeavor College Prep (4-8), founded and led by 2007 BES Fellow Michelle Jasso and Equitas Academy (K-8), founded and led by 2007 BES Fellow Malka Borrego. A high achievement, high poverty school, Endeavor College Prep was named a 2012 California Distinguished School, an award honoring some of California's most exemplary and inspiring public schools.  With a student population 93% Latino, 92% FRL, and 85% ELLs, Equitas Academy dramatically outperforms the State and District on rigorous state assessments, and boasts a 2011 API of 882.
