LEAP Works

LEAP’s educational strategies utilize an arts-based model to address the varied learning styles of students, engaging them, and making learning fun. LEAP strategies have been shown to increase students’ academic performance and test scores. An independent study, conducted by New York University professors, on LEAP’s ALLL K-2 program—which uses multi-sensory, arts-based music, drama, visual art, dance, cooking, technology and games to teach literacy to K-2 students—showed that LEAP’s ALLL students outperformed their peers on 87% of the 23 literacy skills tested. The study also showed that after participating in just one year of the program, ALLL students continued to excel in subsequent years.
