Mission. Impact. Urgency.

MISSION

BES trains leaders to take on the demanding and urgent work of leading high-achieving, college-preparatory urban charter schools.

Across the education landscape, there are well-intentioned schools and well-executed schools.

Well-intentioned schools are plentiful: full of good people who want positive things for students. To be well-intentioned is necessary but insufficient to change
the trajectory of students’ lives.

Well-executed schools are driven by the most critical element of organizational success – leadership.

A strong leader builds and leads a team that executes on the details, measures results, and manages for success. A strong leader propels the school to new academic heights – proving that demographics need not dictate our students’ futures.

URGENCY

Low-income families often lack access to high-performing schools, and socio-economics – more often than not – determine their children’s future. While promising gradual improvements have unfolded in some cities despite these challenges, BES is committed to moving the needle forward at an urgent pace.

More leaders. More schools. More students.

We sweat the small stuff because we know every detail matters – every minute matters – when it comes to closing the achievement gap.
