FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Dear Friends of High Jump,

“High Jump was instrumental in creating a bridge between elementary school and high school. I would have never been able to debate solutions to real world problems and persevere against all odds had it not been for the valuable lessons taught to me by High Jump’s instructors.” – Safia Abdalla, Cohort 20. Northside College Prep, Northwestern University, Class of 2018

At High Jump, nurturing young scholars’ potential to stretch and push farther is at the heart of what we do. Whether it is dissecting a cow heart, reading The Great Gatsby, or confronting complex social issues, our students live this mission everyday. By actively exploring new subjects and challenging themselves and each other, High Jump students are stretching beyond their current boundaries and reaching deeper and broader understandings about the world around them. At High Jump the knowledge students gain and the habits they develop are vital to their success in high school, college and beyond. Last year, more than 96 percent of our Cohort 23 eighth grade graduates went on to attend rigorous college prep high schools! By taking full advantage of their high school opportunities, our older alums have continued their academic success, demonstrating the long-term impact of participation in High Jump. More than 94 percent of High Jump alumni from Cohort 19, high school class of 2013, enrolled in four-year colleges or universities. As we work to build and strengthen our students, we continue to build and strengthen High Jump as an organization. We have developed and implemented a new impact framework to evaluate our efforts and guide our decision-making; embarked on a strategic planning effort to define our next cycle of growth; and expanded our partnerships and operations to continue to serve more middle grade students than ever.

Together, we make the often way-too-abstract ideal of opportunity in America concrete, real, and tangible. When your head starts to spin in the midst of empty rhetoric, divisiveness and conflict for the sake of conflict, I hope you’ll pick up a book recommended by High Jumpers, be inspired by the investment they make in time, devotion and energy or remember, as donors, that your support is meaningful and changes lives. Our work together has taken High Jump to new levels and prepared us to reach even greater heights in the future. I hope you enjoy our annual report – here you’ll find the hard data about outcomes and budgets and a full report of how we’ve grown and improved. Thank you for your support. With gratitude,

Lee Hart Executive Director

FROM THE CHAIR OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES

Dear Friends of High Jump, Because of you, more students than ever have been afforded the opportunity for selective high school choice. In 2013 High Jump served more than 200 high-potential middle school students from under-resourced families throughout Chicago – up from 120 students just over four years ago.

It was an immensely rewarding year for High Jump as we served students on our three campuses situated at our partner schools: Latin School of Chicago, Francis W. Parker School and the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools. These schools provide the in-kind support that allows High Jump students access to top-notch classrooms, art rooms and science labs. This generous support of facilities means that more of your investment goes toward direct service to our students – more teachers and smaller classes. Resources and supports can be, and are, directed where they will make the most impact.

“I can honestly say that the students of High Jump are truly something special. They are smart, motivated and have amazing potential. But more than anything else, they will rise up to the challenges we give them. Seeing the children realize they can do more than they’ve ever thought they could is magical.” – Harley Chang, High Jump Exam Prep – Math Teacher

Children learn when they have opportunities to learn. When denied those opportunities, they fall behind, and we get overwhelming achievement gaps. But when they are provided with the rich opportunities to learn that the High Jump program provides, they thrive, and the achievement gap closes. Thank you for helping to provide new educational opportunities for some of Chicago’s most deserving young learners. And thank you to our talented and dedicated staff led by our passionate Executive Director, Lee Hart, for fulfilling High Jump’s mission of putting our students on a trajectory that will change their lives. All the best,

Priscilla Kersten Chair, Board of Trustees

ORGANIZATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS 2012- 2013

l High Jump expanded to Francis W. Parker School. The Parker campus expansion – combined with the increase in enrollment of the Prep 6 program at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools campus – represents an overall program growth of over 45 percent.

l The board approved the decision to explore growing our Lab campus into a full 7th and 8th grade program, serving up to 120 students per year on Chicago’s south side.

l High Jump marked an important organizational milestone, enrolling its 25th Cohort of students. With the addition of our new 7th grade class, we celebrate our commitment to equalizing access for students across Chicago for the past 25 years.

l High Jump launched an Alumni Council to re-engage our strong alumni base and build a network of determined learners and future – and current – leaders across all cohorts.

l The High Jump Board of Trustees realized 100 percent annual board giving for the first time in the organization’s history, demonstrating full support in fulfilling our mission.

l High Jump developed an Impact Framework evaluation process to ensure the program and its efforts are having their intended impact. This approach will enable us to build a data-driven decision-making culture; better measure program outcomes; and increase our ability to meaningfully improve students’ preparedness for, access to, and success in rigorous academic settings.
