About Us

Innovate Public Schools is a nonprofit school reform organization focused on making sure that low-income students and students of color in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area receive an excellent education that will prepare them for success in life. We publish easy-to-understand school quality data and research that highlights both problems and solutions, and we build the capacity of parents, community leaders and educators to innovate and act together to create world-class public schools.

Innovate Public Schools was founded in late 2012 to meet the need for a new kind of organization that could be a catalyst for urgent school reform by building the political will for change and building local capacity to create excellent new schools.

There are some high-quality schools in the region serving low-income students that are proving what’s possible. But there simply aren’t enough of them. We seek to make the region a place where every child from every neighborhood from any background has access to world-class public schools. We’re building a movement of parents, educators, business leaders and funders who together will make this vision a reality.
