Areas of Impact:

At BPE we commit to nothing less than student success. We believe that every child should have the right to a quality public education and that Boston can be the first city to fulfill this basic promise of our democracy. Our mission is to drive exceptional outcomes for all students by developing great teachers and great schools. We prepare and support a diverse group of talented teachers for Boston's schools, and we partner to create strong schools where teachers can do their best work and children learn at their highest potential. With our innovative and replicable models of teacher and school development, BPE is a powerful force for reframing schooling in Boston.

Next year, Cennamo hopes to spread the initiative to six more schools. Read More
