Partners has helped turn our school around on many levels and helped to strengthen the staff and administrative team. We owe a great deal of our academic and culture/climate successes to our partnership

Richard Curci

Principal, San Francisco Unified School District

Partners’ work is clearly a powerful national model for school transformation; but what might be the most lasting benefit for us is how the Partners’ approach works to build the capacity of our leaders at the district level.

José Manzo

Superintendent, Alum Rock Union Elementary School District

Being a partner school felt overwhelming in the beginning because I misunderstood the purpose of the support. The support is not about what Partners wants. The support is all about what I want as an instructional leader.
