Small and rigorous

"On national tests of reading, writing, math, and science, African-American and Hispanic students at DOD-run schools consistently rank at or near the top on comparisons of minority achievement. The schools are small, nurturing, and demanding across the board. And that, says Fort Campbell High Principal Kenneth Killebrew, is the secret of their success: "In any class in this school, you're going to find rigor."

I recall reading an extensive article about schools for the military's children a few years ago--maybe Atlantic or Harper's--reporting how much better they were than the average public school. Anyone recall the source?
