At Garfield High School 93.8% of non low-income students met reading standards compared to 66.1% of low-income students (HSPE 2012).
54% of low-income 8th grade students in Seattle met the standards in reading, compared to 67% of non low-income 8th grade students.

What is the "Achievement Gap"/"The Opportunity Gap"?
This term refers to the disparity in academic performance between African-Americans and Latinos and their White and Asian-American peers. A similar gap also exists between low-income and middle to high-income families.
Examples are found in…
Standardized test scores
Enrollment in “gatekeeper” courses
(advanced math, AP courses, especially true at WMS and Garfield)
Drop out rates
In Seattle Public Schools:
Last year, students who participated in SU After School programming at Bailey Gatzert saw their MAP scores in math grow by 5 more points than students who did not participate (22 point growth for SUYI participants, 17 points for non-participants).
The Youth Initiative impact so far...
Last year, 55 out of 390 Bailey Gatzert students were homeless. That is 14% of the student population.
