We come to work every day because we want to make a difference in the lives of students. We started this work as student activists ourselves, promoting student voice in school improvement conversations. Today from our office in Boston, we proudly support over 7 million students in 8,500 schools, 500 districts, 46 states, and 15 countries.
Over the past five years, we have seen how data play a powerful role in improving school climate and culture, teaching and learning, family and community engagement, and students' social-emotional learning. We believe in supporting schools and districts from beginning to end—from administering surveys and conducting data analysis, to providing hands-on coaching and support.
Because we believe that all students deserve the highest-quality education, we've made all our research-backed survey instruments open-source and free for educators to use. We'll continue to share the best practices we learn from the innovative schools and districts we support.
We're committed to widening our perspective on what matters for students and for school success. We've since created the team and the company to do it, and we call ourselves Panorama.
