Match Education operates high-performing charter public schools in Boston. Our goal is to create and maintain a growing portfolio of schools, each with two attributes:
- Quality. Each school strives to be among the very best public schools in the country at preparing low-income students for success in four-year colleges.
- Innovation. Our school leadership teams are innovative and strive to find unique solutions to whatever issue may arise.
We are currently authorized to serve 1,250 children in Boston across five public charter school campuses. We serve typical urban students at the elementary, middle and high school levels. Admitted via blind lotteries, nearly all of our students are from low-income, minority families. In addition, our students tend to arrive with us at several years behind grade level in reading, writing, and math.
School leadership at Match schools stresses the necessity for uncompromising expectations and genuine care for our students as well as the importance of an enormous effort by both faculty and students. Accordingly, every student at a Match school attends school 7.5-10 hours per day, and receives two hours of 1-1, 2-1, or 3-1 tutoring every day in addition to excellent classroom teaching.
