Review for Partners In School Innovation, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I participated in a 2-year fellowship with Partners in School innovation and left my experience more prepared and skilled to work as an urban school administrator than I ever imagined possible. The level of talent and cultural competence of my colleagues consistently pushed me to learn and grow every day as a professional working to close the academic achievement gap in high needs schools. Partners in School Innovation yields results, and does an incredible job capturing and strengthening the work to sustain and empower school communities long after the partnership is over.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the school site I was placed. We made the highest gains in San Francisco out of all our partnership schools.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The amazing talent, professionalism and general collegiality of my colleagues. They made coming to work each day exciting and rewarding.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

VERY smart, hardworking and set a high standard of excellence.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

start its own schools across California.

Ways to make it better...

I had been given more room and guidance to innovate at my school site.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding high levels of talent for specific job openings.

One time
