About Our Support

No fads. All recommendations are based on and supported by high-quality research conducted in the middle grades.

No vendors. We are a non-profit, not a vendor, and we promote a collection of research-based practices that enhance instruction.

Nationally recognized experts. Our researchers are all widely published, affiliated with top universities, and former teachers who understand the challenges educators face everyday.

Beyond traditional "sit and get" professional development. In addition to structured PD sessions, we demonstrate the practices in YOUR classroom, assist with lesson planning, and provide follow-up coaching and support.

Collaborative. We work WITH schools and educators as partners, not as evaluators or compliance regulators.

Customized and aligned. Support is customized to schools' needs and aligned with existing goals and initiatives.

Relatable staff. Our staff includes former middle grades educators who truly care about middle school teachers and students.
