Our guiding principles.

Our culture is built on strong values. United by purpose, passion, and powerful collaboration, we’re driven to be better here—to each other, to our students, and to the partners who work with us to eliminate the back row in education.

  • Cherish each opportunity.

    Life is short, so treasure every moment.

  • Give a damn.

    Care about what you do each day.

  • Strive for excellence.

    Don't settle for second best.

  • Be bold and fearless.

    Question the status quo and embrace change.

  • Be candid, honest and open.

    Listen to others and offer respectful feedback.

  • Have fun.

    Fun is important. Fun is simply better.

  • Make service your mission.

    Give the highest level of support to our partners and to one another.

  • Don’t let the skeptic win.

    "No" is easy. "Yes" is hard. Fight for "yes."

  • Relationships matter.

    Build trust, value differences, and invest the time.
