By working together, we can change the story lines for students at-risk of dropping out. Hear from the students themselves about how their involvement with 90% by 2020 has improved their lives. 

More than 350 students graduated high school instead of dropping out thanks to the efforts of 90% by 2020 and our partners. This is what success looks like.

“The Back on Track program was a blessing. Going was the best decision I’ve made in quite a while. Previously at Bartlett, I faced some hardships and my grades went down as a result. I wasn’t sure if I would even graduate as my attendance was also diminishing alongside my motivation. I was given the chance to redeem myself by enrolling in Back on Track and I promised myself that I would graduate no matter what. Back on Track has strengthened my desire to finish and get my diploma. It offers students many positive actions towards graduating. I wasn’t able to get rides every day at Bartlett – it was a constant struggle – but Back on Track made it so much easier to attend. I only had a handful of credits left and the work provided was great, I was able to learn how to balance school and work. I definitely have an open pathway to success due to the second chance I was given. I will use the knowledge I’ve gained throughout my educational career and apply it to the real world.”
