HighScope and Head Start: A Long History
HighScope and Head Start share a long history of providing high-quality services to at-risk children. The Perry Preschool work helped to support the creation of Head Start. Today, it is estimated that one fifth of Head Start programs use the HighScope Curriculum in their preschool classrooms. HighScope has for many years conducted research on the effectiveness of Head Start and on how to further enhance the program through professional development activities.
