By creating great public schools where they are needed most, EL Education inspires teachers and students to achieve more than they thought possible.  

EL's Mission and Vision

When students and teachers are engaged in work that is challenging, adventurous and meaningful, learning and achievement flourish. Our mission is to create classrooms where teachers can fulfill their highest aspirations, and students achieve more than they think possible, becoming active contributors to building a better world.  

Three Dimensions of Student Achievement

Mastery of Knowledge and Skills

Character

High-Quality Student Work

Communicate clearly: write, speak, and present ideas effectively in a variety of media within and across disciplines
Work to become effective learners: develop the mindsets and skills for success in college, career, and life (e.g., initiative, responsibility, perseverance, collaboration)

Work to become ethical people: treat others well and stand up for what is right (e.g., empathy, integrity, respect, compassion)

Contribute to a better world: put their learning to use to improve communities (e.g., citizenship, service)
Create complex work: demonstrate higher-order thinking, multiple perspectives and transfer of understanding

Demonstrate craftsmanship: create work that is accurate and beautiful in conception and execution

Create authentic work: demonstrate original thinking and voice, connect to real-world issues and formats, and when possible, create work that is meaningful to the community beyond the school
