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 achievement 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 low-income students and students of color.
