Damen Lopez founded TurnAround Schools in 2006 based upon the following 2 principles:
- Every child has the right to be prepared to attend college.
- It is the responsibility of adults in the school to develop exceptional systems that make that dream a reality.
TurnAround Schools organizes Institutes where practitioners from remarkable schools share how they coax impressive success from at-risk learners. Teachers and leaders leave our Institutes with solid strategies they can put into place the next day, and a hopeful optimism for the potential of each of their students.
Our mission is to empower educators with proven strategies that get results. We can help your teachers and leaders implement these strategies. We are successful at what we do.
