Bruce Randolph School is a public school in Denver, Colorado for grades six through twelve. Its turnaround in student graduation rates between 2006 and 2010 was praised by U.S. President Barack Obama during his 2011 State of the Union Address.[1] Part of Denver Public Schools, Bruce Randolph began to operate autonomously in 2007 in a bid to turn around its dismal graduation rates, which was successful. As part as the changes, each teacher had to reapply for their job, after which only six of forty remained.[2]
