College Placement

  • The reality - among young Americans whose parents did not graduate from college only 5 percent will graduate from college themselves.

In success – 92% of Waterside graduates (Class of 2007 - 2010) are attending or have earned admission to selective colleges and universities

  • The reality – all available evidence strongly indicates that students from lower income backgrounds will have far better life outcomes if able to attend colleges that are selective and well resourced

In success – Colleges that Waterside School alumni are attending in 2017-2018
