AltSchool’s mission is to enable all children to reach their potential. We are a public benefit corporation and a Certified B Corporation, bringing together a unique partnership of educators, engineers, and researchers to create a proprietary learning platform guided by the most comprehensive body of current educational research. AltSchool’s platform is designed to empower schools everywhere to offer personalized, whole-child learning for each student, and to enable teachers to truly understand each child—both deep and wide—so they can develop a learner-centric environment that helps each child thrive.
Headquartered in San Francisco, AltSchool currently operates a network of schools in California and New York, which serve as learning labs for ongoing research and development. Starting fall 2017, that network of schools will expand to include the first cohort of pilot partner schools using the AltSchool platform of products and services. We are backed by many key investors, including Founders Fund, Andreessen Horowitz, and Mark Zuckerberg & Priscilla Chan’s donor-advised fund at the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, who are committed to help achieve the goal of making the best education the most accessible.
The Corporate team functions as the glue that holds our company together. Our administrative, finance, legal, and people operations professionals (including our executive team) strive to instill healthy business practices while ensuring that AltSchool remains an inspiring place for our students to learn and our employees to work and grow.
