About Us

Founded in 1986 by Dr. Henry M. Levin at Stanford University, the Accelerated Schools Project has worked successfully with over 1500 schools. Our work has led to significant improvements and documented successes. (American Institutes for Research, Education Alliance at Brown University, Manpower Development Research Corporation-MDRC, RAND Corporation, Texas Study of the High School Redesign and Restructuring Program)


We engage the community, administrators, staff, teachers, parents, students, and others to develop the best school possible for their learning community.  Within the Accelerated Schools model, the school community works collaboratively and thoughtfully to determine its vision, understand its challenges, and problem-solve to meet the campus’s unique needs. We gather feedback and data at every step to build long-term, sustainable success.
