We can’t do this alone.
Educational gaps in America are widening despite decades of concerted effort by committed educators and school leaders. We know that’s true because we’re a team with nearly 75 years of combined experience in public education.
We also know it doesn’t have to be this way. At Ensemble Learning, we leverage the full power of schools to make good on the promise of education in America. We have a clear mission: To make education equitable for all English learners.
As our name suggests, we understand that no one leader, no one solution, no one organization is up to the challenge. Just like every distinct voice in an ensemble chorus contributes to the success of the whole, so must we bring into harmony all of the distinct voices needed to make education work for every learner in every school in America. When we work together, the result is powerful. Working together, taking an ensemble approach is the only chance we have for success.
What we do:
Ensemble Learning provides services to support your instruction of English learners tailored to your school’s needs and values and informed by your individual data in three areas:
School leaders have the power to share a vision of commitment to high standards; cultivate leadership; focus consistently on improving instruction; and manage people, data, and processes
High quality materials and teachers with a good pedagogical foundation are key to student success
Even if you have the highest quality instruction and the best processes, students will not learn until they feel supported and valued in your classroom
“I feel I’ve gained a better understanding of the needs of our campus. This was a great opportunity to be able to discuss possible solutions for these problems.”– 2018 Central Texas program participant
