What if everyone acted on a shared vision to create more innovative school models? “Reimagining Learning” describes work already underway by practitioners, partners and friends, and lays out a bold plan for the future. Together, we can accelerate the momentum to create innovative schools that prepare every student to achieve their greatest aspirations.
Our investment strategy is designed to accelerate the pace and quality of education innovation so that more schools prepare our students for academic, career and life success.
Our Impact Since 1998
