Efforts to serve Latina/o/x students has received continued attention over the last couple of decades.  There has been recognition of significant demographic changes, disparities with achievement and attainment outcomes, and equity issues as they relate to language programs and policies, testing, teacher development, and many others.  While important, it is also vital to ask additive questions about Latina/o/x students’ experiences in education such as, Where are Latina/o/x students thriving?  In what ways does excellence emerge in their lives?  How can education systems capitalize on such excellence?  This presentation will introduce the metaphor of the institutional mirror by exploring the extent to the which the institution reflects the identity, culture, knowledge, and experiences of Latina/o/x students.  Drawing on various asset-based conceptual frameworks and referencing preliminary data from an in-depth study with Latina/o/x high school students, this presentation will explore how additive frameworks and Latina/o/x excellence can be incorporated into educational policy and practice.
