Strong schools rest on the shoulders of strong leaders. That’s why BES identifies and prepares excellent leaders to transform education in their communities. From school founders and executive directors, to operations leaders, deans of students, and directors of curriculum and instruction, we train leaders to build schools, to ensure their schools excel, and to sustain their results over time. Over more than two decades, 2,500+ alumni of BES training have created 55,000+ quality school seats across the country. Schools founded by BES-trained leaders are outpacing student achievement in their districts and states and closing the opportunity gap.
