Aldridge is partially organized for improvement

The 5Essentials can identify the ways in which a school is organized for school improvement. In fact, over two decades of research on Chicago Public Schools has shown that schools strong on three or more of these essentials were 10 times more likely to improve student learning than schools weak in three or more.

The 5Essentials framework was validated by the University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research at the University of Chicago Urban Education Institute, in partnership with Chicago Public Schools. Research identifies Effective Leaders, Collaborative Teachers, Involved Families, Supportive Environment, and Ambitious Instruction as the factors that matter most for student learning.
