Join our passionate team and help us narrow the achievement gap.
Equal Opportunity Schools is a growth-stage, education-reform not-for-profit that changes lives and narrows the opportunity gap by collaborating with superintendents and principals to address an inequity in our schools: under-enrollment in the best academic programs.
What do we do?
We facilitate change to mindsets through program implementation and processes, provide evidence to pivot conversations and student engagements based on data analysis, resulting in challenging districts norms and having a positive impact on students of color and low-income students.
Why Work with US
Our work makes a real difference. Because of what we do, our partner districts are able to close achievement gaps and change the trajectories of students’ lives.
“Reflecting on my career, the through line has been the effort to achieve equity for ALL students. I was attracted to EOS because the company mission, reflected in its people, is about realizing the same purposes that have propelled me over time. Further, the EOS partnership represents a true leverage point to help schools and districts realize results and change practices and mindsets. ”
– Dr. John Ramos, Superintendent-in-Residence
“I was drawn to EOS because of its mission to provide access to underserved youth in our public school system. To be able to affect change in the large system we call “public education” is profound and makes me proud to be a part of EOS. Working with like-minded colleagues is an incredible feeling, and meeting administrators, teachers and staff from around the country who serve our youth, has been awe-inspiring. EOS combines my passion for equitable access in education, and working alongside teammates who share the same vision, drive and work ethic.”

It produces actionable steps that we can help schools take over the course of a school year to drive cultural and enrollment improvements for traditionally underrepresented students. We also have a brilliant staff that are not only passionate about the work, but committed to using their talents to improve educational outcomes for underrepresented students.”
