Building Excellent Schools


We are also proud members of Building Excellent Schools. As they say: “BES trains leaders to take on the demanding and urgent work of leading high-achieving, college-preparatory urban charter schools. Across the education landscape, there are well-intentioned schools and well-executed schools. Well-intentioned schools are plentiful: full of good people who want positive things for students. To be well-intentioned is necessary but insufficient to change the trajectory of students’ lives. Well-executed schools are driven by the most critical element of organizational success – leadership. A strong leader builds and leads a team that executes on the details, measures results, and manages for success. A strong leader propels the school to new academic heights – proving that demographics need not dictate our students’ futures.”
