School Turnaround: A catalyst for change in low-performing schools

School Turnaround

School Turnaround is a hard-hitting intervention designed to reverse decline in public, private, and charter schools in as little as one year. In contrast to gentle change programs that seek to change the culture, methods, and procedures of schools, School Turnaround believes that kids should only be in first grade once. 


School Turnaround is a leadership-development methodology that helps principals, teachers, and students immediately improve academic achievement. Since 2001, School Turnaround has turned around over 300 schools in 70 school districts around the country.


School Turnaround’s proven track record is grounded in the belief that change must be owned locally and our role in this is to be the catalyst and partner. Schools and the people who lead, teach, and learn in them are unique. One-size will never fit all.

Our School Turnaround specialists train your leaders, set targets, and implement proven strategies that are guaranteed to deliver results. They are all former school leaders who previously turned around a school. The support from our team of specialists works so well that we offer this warranty: if your school does not attain achievement targets we will 

offer a refund.
