To be a catalyst for change and a model for innovation in education in the Houston area and beyond, to ensure that every student is prepared for post-secondary success.

OUR STRATEGIES

Consulting
in Schools

Incubating
Innovation

We believe that for public schools to prepare students for the 21st century, they must rethink everything – so we test ideas and pilot innovative models that have the potential to revolutionize learning.
