At Achievement First, teachers have weekly coaching sessions. In fact, every Friday, coaches record teachers in the classroom, then spend time with them reviewing their performance and practicing new techniques. It’s this kind of personal attention and constructive feedback that makes Achievement First a special place to work.
Achievement First knows that zip code doesn't determine destiny—and that all children deserve access to a great school. Across the thriving network of 32 schools in five cities, Achievement First is helping students develop the skills they need to graduate from top colleges and serve as the next generation of leaders in their communities.
“There are a lot of schools in Brooklyn and there are a lot of schools around the world, but there’s no place like Achievement First. From the moment you get here, you feel loved—you feel like you’re part of a team, and you feel like you matter.”
“Achievement First has a lot of values, but when you boil everything down, it’s that our kids come first, always, no matter what.”
