Who we are
We are an international educational consulting organization that partners with education leaders to develop the strategy and confidence to lead bold and equitable change—and we provide the wrap-around and embedded supports to make change happen.
As former teachers, coaches, school leaders, and high-level district and state administrators, we appreciate the challenges, nuances, and opportunities of implementing large-scale change and we know the keys to making them stick.
How we support schools, districts, and states
Since 2000, we have partnered with schools, districts, charter management organizations, and states in the US and abroad through some of their largest challenges, including:
- successfully turning around chronically under-performing schools through a variety of evidence-based school improvement supports,
- training aspiring and current leaders to be strategic and get the right things done through leadership academies and executive coaching, and
- helping to change the culture of teacher growth to one of trust through PLCs, professional development, and instructional coaching.
