Achievement Plus is a private/public partnership between the Saint Paul Public Schools and the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation. The primary goal of Achievement Plus is to improve student achievement in schools located in low income areas of the city, while serving as a demonstration site and model for urban education.
The three main components of Achievement Plus are academics, extended learning opportunities, and learning supports that assist students, families and community members.
Achievement Plus has been in operation since 1997. Other partners who helped create the initiative included the City of Saint Paul, Ramsey County, the State of Minnesota and many private funders and foundations.
