Turnaround schools have been pushed to the forefront as a result of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 which endorsed a reform effort of standards-based education. NCLB asserted the fact that schools could no longer continue failing students and reform efforts were soon put into place. This descriptive study examined a high school in a large urban district (LUD) in the Southwest part of Texas that implemented its version of a turnaround school model, “Advance Now” in 2010. The Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) was used to extrapolate the data of the school in order to discern whether progress had been made in the turnaround effort. This study found that progress was made in many areas; however, there were significant disparities between the subgroups. These disproportions supported the fact that there is much work to be done in closing all educational gaps.
