Overview

A miracle can be defined as a highly improbable or extraordinary accomplishment. Using that guideline, the story of the Algebra program at JEB Stuart High School in Fairfax, Virginia, qualifies for such a designation. Over a period of 15 years beginning in 1993, a series of ambitious, no-cost innovations challenging the prevailing status quo in math education led to academic accomplishments that were improbable and extraordinary. This miracle was achieved by a high-poverty, ethnically diverse student body that was unique at the time but is now representative of schools found throughout the U.S.
For everyone touched by education from parents and students to teachers and administrators, “The Algebra Miracle” will provide insights into finding a low-cost formula for academic success in the tight budgetary times of the 21st century. This story serves as a model of what can be accomplished when a dedicated school staff commits its time, energy and creativity to their students’ needs.
