Impact Through Innovation
Since becoming the nation’s first urban teacher residency program in 2001 and the nation’s first in-district innovation zone in 2006, we have operated autonomously within the Chicago Public School system to transform the city’s lowest-performing schools.
Today, we have trained over 1,000 high-quality teachers, has transformed 31 schools, and currently impacts 17,000 children throughout Chicago’s South and West sides, and provides Advisory Services for school districts across the country. And recently, we were recognized as a key element of Chicago’s learning gains over the last decade.
