So you can design, implement, and continuously improve
the environments learners need to thrive now and in the future.

Our Approach

Elevate is dedicated to getting to know our members schools deeply, helping them cut through the sea of information to find the resources they need to move forward. We scour the world for exceptional ideas and share them through in-depth research reports, school leader and teacher professional learning, convenings, conferences, and consulting.


Our members drive our agenda and co-create with us and each other.

Holistic Approach

We use systems- and design-thinking approaches to tackle big problems.

Diverse Perspectives

We are idea hunters, drawing ideas from multiple domains.

Practical & Useful

We create and curate practical and useful tools, and don’t overwhelm our members with content.

What sets Explo Elevate apart is that it breathes and diffuses a spirit of mutual cooperation. Belonging to the Explo Elevate network for even a couple of months has meant finding peer schools not only willing but eager to share best practices and struggle through common challenges.
