unlocking the potential of great schools 

Every day, across the city, in schools of all kinds, teachers and students work incredibly hard. But too often, our teachers and kids’ hard work doesn’t lead to results we want to see. We know that our teachers, families and kids can do it. But the great potential that lies in our classrooms is all too often never fully realized. Why?

PAVE knows that great schools are, at heart, well run organizations that allow teachers to teach, and kids to learn, at their fullest potential. We unlock the potential of great schools by helping school leaders overcome those organizational hurdles that too often hinder great teaching. No other organization in Milwaukee – or nationally – focuses on building schools as strong organizations. And our success in helping schools reach their potential shows that PAVE’s work is needed now more than ever.
