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

Rating: 5 stars  

Partners in School Innovation is playing an essential role in the transformation of student learning in the lowest performing schools in downtown San Jose. Partners began with one school in the district and worked tirelessly with the school staff and leadership to build trust and institute changes to instructional practice. The results were dramatic gains for the school year after year. More importantly, this foundational work became the basis of a systemic collaboration between Partners in School Innovation and the San Jose Unified School District, which began in 2007. The promising early results of that first year are validating the initiative and providing momentum for an even deeper collaboration during the coming school year.

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

the improvement of student achievement, as measured by test results. But more importantly, the entire educational conversation is shifting from what the teacher is teaching to what the student is learning.

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

unmatchable quality and commitment of the talented staff.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
