In March 2018, ABRE launched a new digital tool for parents in Puerto Rico, “ABRE Tu Escuela” (“Open Your School”). It allows, for the first time, the evaluation of academic performance across Puerto Rico’s public school system, using standardized measures. The tool, an interactive index classifying all of Puerto Rico’s public schools by academic performance, allows parents, students, and teachers to understand how the quality of one school compares to others in the system.

Currently, the performance index is calculated based on standardized test scores, graduation rates, and College Board data. ABRE is currently working with the Puerto Rico Department of Education to add additional variables to the Index.
