The Julia Richman Education Complex: The JREC Story

Release Date: 
January 5, 2004

Learn about a successful school redesign in this story of the Julia Richman Education Complex (JREC).

It presents the story of the successful transformation of New York City's large, comprehensive Julia Richman High School into the Julia Richman Education Complex. From an academically failing, physically unsafe, graffiti-ridden school of 2,600 that graduated only a third of its students, Julia Richman has become a vibrant multi-age complex of six schools, including four high schools that now graduate more than 90% of their students and send about 90% to college.
