Ellen Osmundson and Joan Herman
This is an evaluation report for Year 6 of the Math and Science Academy (MSA), an initiative of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. MSA’s aim is to significantly improve math, science, and language arts education, as part of a larger systematic change initiative to improve the overall education of students of northern New Mexico. During Year 6 of MSA, three knowledgeable and highly skilled mentor teachers led the project. Twenty-two schools and their administrators, 80 teachers and approximately 1800 elementary students (Grades K-6), 1500 middle-school students, and 300 high-school students (Grade 9 only) participated in MSA during the 2005-2006 school year.
