In an independent study, researchers from American University concluded that Impact Network schools improve the numeracy and literacy skills of students and cost less than 1/3 of government schools.

The evaluation examined five Impact Network schools, five surrounding government schools and five other community schools.

In 2015, the researchers published their findings.
