How has your work at EL changed your perception of student achievement?

EL Education's emphasis on the 3 dimensions of students' achievement has changed my perspective on student achievement. Mastery of skills and content, quality work, and character has given language to something I've intuitively believed and lived. EL Education stands for achievement beyond traditional assessments, including meaningful measures such as real work and one's integrity, compassion, persistence.

Crew means loyalty. It means commitment to others who are like family; you support and encourage them, care about and for them, and work together so that each individual - and the group - can achieve.
