See what student-centered learning looks like
Hear children ask questions and challenge each other
See how a vibrant classroom fosters collaboration
See the evidence of equity and rigor from the students to the teachers to the administrators.
IMPROVE EQUITY AND CLOSE THE ACHIEVEMENT GAP
In schools and districts across the U.S., LSI’s Applied Research Center is transforming
core instruction and leadership practices, resulting in rapid gains in student learning.
Our metrics-driven methodologies are designed from decades of research, working with schools and districts across the U.S., state DOE’s, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in Florida, and the Wallace Foundation in Des Moines, Iowa.
Our district partnerships result in closing the achievement gap by equipping all students with the social, emotional, and cognitive skills to thrive in the 21st century. We believe these are the skills necessary to help break the cycle of poverty.
