Our mission is to deliver on the promise of equal educational opportunity for all of America's children. We know that every child—regardless of race, zip code, or economic status—deserves access to great schools. At Achievement First, our students realize their potential and develop the skills they need to graduate from college, succeed in a competitive world, and serve as the next generation of leaders in our community.
We are a growing network of 36 non-profit, high-performing K-12 public charter schools in Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island. But we’re more than that. We’re changemakers.
I enjoy making sure the whole child is looked after so their brains can be ready to learn. I’m not just behind the scenes directing, I’m directly involved in every aspect of school.
