We have a proven track record of transforming schools across the nation – from large urban schools to distributed schools in rural areas.
Today students are faced with a myriad of issues both at home and at school which can be barriers to their success. Schools are unsafe, dropout rates are on the rise, bullying and violence dominate the culture. While some might argue that the problems are out of the school’s control, there are many steps that can be taken to help students succeed.
Dr. Steve Edwards and team leverage innovative techniques he pioneered as Principal of East Hartford High School. While there, he increased standardized tests scores, reduced the number of suspensions by a 50%, reduced the incidents of fighting by 50%, and reduced the dropout rate from 28% to under 1.8% in 10 years.
Schools who have engaged Edwards Educational Services to help with student achievement have seen:
- Reduced dropout rates
- Safer schools
- Improved test scores
- Increased student engagement
- Increased teacher engagement
The team at Edwards Educational Services can show you how.
We believe each school/district has its own unique issues, and a cookie-cutter approach isn’t going to work. During our engagements, we spend time with school leadership to understand the issues and develop a plan of action on what areas to focus on that will yield the best results.
We offer a wide-variety of workshops, lectures, and consulting services to help school leaders, educators and student develop their leadership skills.
