Project GRAD Houston

Project GRAD Houston (GRAD) is an education reform model at work in five feeder patterns (Davis, Sam Houston, Reagan, Wheatley and Yates) within Houston Independent School District (HISD), serving 64 schools and over 44,000 economically disadvantaged children – 23% of the school district's total school population and approximately 24% of its total at-risk population.


Project GRAD has a longstanding history with HISD, providing programs such as scholarship, mentoring, and education. While a small sample of results provided by GRAD indicates increased graduation rates and decreased dropout rates, lack of broader disclosures of results and lack of detail regarding program services provided by GRAD limit the ability to draw a causal link between programs provided and results achieved.
