Title:  Harlem Children's Zone (HCZ) Promise Academy Charter Schools
Description: This What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) report summarizes the research on Harlem Children’s Zone (HCZ) Promise Academy Charter Schools is a non-profit organization designed to serve low-income children and families living in Harlem in New York City. The HCZ Promise Academy Charter Schools have a longer school day and year than traditional public schools, monitor student progress on academic outcomes, provide differentiated instruction, and educate students and families on character development, healthy lifestyles, and leadership skills. After reviewing the current research, the WWC found that no eligible studies meet WWC design standards. Therefore, more research is needed to determine the program's impacts on elementary, middle, and high school students.
