Why EQUITY?

Why EQUITY? Simply put, we are a local neighborhood organization  who is getting it right. We focus on improving neighborhood schools in spaces that need and deserve the best quality seats . What else? We believe in a “Do No Harm” school model that keeps kids in school and maximizes time to develop social and emotional skills, and academic ownership. We believe hard work, raw talent, humor, passion for our kids, and a little quirkiness are critical elements of any great school and organization.

Our staff and teachers are making an impact in the lives of kids who need it the most and we are committed to only working in this space. We are convinced that strong schools help build strong communities. And that, in turn, strong communities sustain strong schools. We believe, deeply, that access to quality education is the most fundamental social justice issue today. And we seek, with every decision we make and every action we take, to provide our students with a level of access and opportunity so they can build the life they choose. Our work takes energy, effort, and some days just sheer will.

We relentlessly pursue our mission, in a deeply personal way. Every person has a role in achieving our mission. At any crossroads within the team or organization, our mission steers us in the right direction. Getting quality results, and getting the job done with excellence, comes first but not at the sacrifice of our mission and values.

We believe people are our most valuable resource. Our team is here to find the right people for our schools, who can do their best work, each day, for a very long time.

We work to welcome feedback with understanding, even if it is sometimes hard to hear. When we give feedback, we work to do so constructively, in pursuit of excellence, and in a mission-focused way. We are here to get things right, and we know that consistent and courageous feedback helps us get stronger.

We need our people to show up, opt-in, work hard and finish strong. By taking the time and space to be human, our creativity, patience, drive and motivation stays fresh over the long term.

We believe that being transparent builds security and trust. Transparency helps solve problems quicker and better and builds stronger teams and more authentic relationships which leads to overall better performance and sustainability.

Every day, we are excited about our work, our potential and our future in creating remarkable, neighborhood schools for our kids and their families.
