Student Success. Nothing Less.
At BPE we commit to nothing less than student success. We believe that every child should have the right to a quality public education and that Boston can be the first city to fulfill this basic promise of our democracy.
Our mission is to drive exceptional outcomes for all students by developing great teachers and great schools. We prepare and support a diverse group of talented teachers for Boston's schools, and we partner to create strong schools where teachers can do their best work and children learn at their highest potential.
With our innovative and replicable models of teacher and school development, BPE is a powerful force for reframing schooling in Boston.
Drawing on over 25 years of experience working to improve urban schools, BPE is committed to three strategies that, together, have the highest likelihood of achieving our goal of success for every student:
- Prepare and support diverse, highly effective teachers for Boston’s schools through a best-in-class teacher preparation and development program. More.
- Ensure broad student success in partner schools by cultivating ambitious instruction in every classroom with a coherent, data-driven approach to school improvement. More.
- Create break-the-mold new schools that ensure all students are prepared to succeed in college and career. More.
These three activities are inextricably linked. Placing teacher preparation in schools allows us to foster communities in which adults are continually learning and working to achieve student success. Our school partnerships help schools to implement coherent systems and practices in which teachers and students can best learn and grow.
Enacting this three-part strategy, we will directly reach almost 10% of BPS students, dramatically accelerating their progress. Just as important, we will be creating new, replicable models for developing great teachers and great schools.
