The best educators know that learning will always be more than what appears on standardized tests. Together we are creating new metrics and new ways to support not only college and career readiness but also character, community, and compassion in our students.
Who We Are
Eskolta School Research and Design, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping urban public schools re-engage teenagers who are at risk of dropping out. We work alongside educators to make their schools student-centered through a strategic process of participant-driven, data-informed school improvement.
What We Do
Founded in 2010, Eskolta has engaged in over 100 projects in which we work alongside educators in public schools to research, develop, implement, and codify effective practices for innovatively engaging adolescents in school and preparing them for meaningful careers, college success, community involvement, and engaged citizenship.
Who We Serve
