Company Description:

We are an international educational consulting organization that partners with education leaders to develop the strategy and confidence to lead bold change—and we provide the wrap-around and embedded supports to make change happen.

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 underperforming 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.

The efficacy of our work has been documented in prominent studies such as:

  • The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Measures of Effective Teaching Project
  • Harvard's Center for Education Policy Research's The Best Foot Forward Project
  • RAND Corporation's Improving Teaching Effectiveness: Access to Effective Teaching
  • Georgia's Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA)'s 2015-2016 End-of-Year Evaluation Report for the Reading Mentors Program
