In June 2019, Altitude Learning was introduced as a new, educator-led company dedicated to helping districts and schools nationwide make the shift to learner-centered education. With the dramatic changes that have taken place in how we work, live, and experience the world, there are many education innovators and change agents courageously and tirelessly working to realign the way students develop and learn in the classroom. We are here to help lead the way in this transformation.
Altitude Learning is helping districts and schools modernize their education models and prepare students for the future. We have a growing network of more than 40 public district and independent school partners using our professional learning services and flexible comprehensive technology platform as part of their journey towards a learner-centered model. We have a team led by industry renowned educators, who share a bold vision for where education is going, and a dedication to helping ALL learners develop the knowledge, skills, and habits they need to shape their own journey.
Much of our strength is supported by our roots as AltSchool. For six years, we operated a network of Kindergarten through 8th grade lab schools in San Francisco and New York. We developed a clear perspective on the role technology should and shouldn’t play in the classroom, and also saw the need for formal guidance and support in schools as they pursue their journey towards learner-centered. Our school support program grew out of our roots as AltSchool, and our lab schools continue as part of the Altitude Learning partner network. We remain focused on the adaptive and technical support required to deliver a truly learner-centered school experience.
AltSchool, PBC, is proud to be both a Certified B Corporation and a public benefit corporation.
By voluntarily setting high standards for social contribution, environmental responsibility, and accountability to a greater good, we are distinguishing ourselves within the education sector by modeling a better way to do business for our students, families, and schools. Certified B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders, which for AltSchool means students, parents, educators, and partner schools.
