AIMS PreK-16
The Alliance for Improvement of Mathematics Skills PreK-16 (AIMS PK-16) is a partnership of nine independent school districts in South Texas and two Hispanic-serving institutions of higher education, Del Mar (Community) College and Texas A&M University, Kingsville. The partner school districts serve roughly 30,000 students, of whom 61% are minority students and 50% are economically disadvantaged students. The overarching goal of AIMS PK-16 is to prepare all students in the partner districts for success in college-level mathematics courses by the time that they graduate from high school. This will require the partnership to close significant achievement gaps among student groups, especially raising the achievement of a sizeable Hispanic student population.
