About Junior Achievement, 3DE and Banneker High School: A joint venture between Fulton County Schools, JA of Georgia and the broader Atlanta community led to the pilot of a new school model. Launched in 2015 at Banneker High School, the model quickly demonstrated the ability to drive student engagement and academic performance. Within four years the model expanded to six schools in four districts, each serving a range of academic levels and backgrounds. Every school demonstrated a similar path to transformation: it began with shifts in culture and engagement, which year-over-year resulted in measurable gains in students’ knowledge, skills and aspirations. All of this building towards students graduating with a vision for their future, confidence in their abilities, and a path to achievement. Credit: https://www.3deschools.org/about
