BPE's mission is to drive exceptional outcomes for all students by developing great teachers and great schools. BPE has devised solutions to the toughest challenges faced by Boston’s students and teachers by weaving together expertise in teacher training and school development. We believe ambitious teaching (defined as instruction that consistently engages all students in rigorous content) requires not only effective teachers, but also systems that support great teaching and methods for continuous improvement. We have prepared over 700 teachers for Boston's public schools through the nationally recognized and replicated Boston Teacher Residency (BTR) and have pioneered scalable, cutting edge data tools and whole school improvement strategies.
Today, we are redesigning schooling for students and teachers by creating neighborhood-based Teaching Academies, which are in-district, PreK-12 schools providing a world-class education for all students while preparing outstanding new teachers for the Boston Public Schools. In 2012, we launched our first Teaching Academy, the Dudley Street Neighborhood Charter School (Grades K1-5), and in 2015 began operating our second Teaching Academy, the Dearborn STEM Academy (Grades 6-12).
BPE does not discriminate with regard to race, color, origin, gender, political affiliation, disability, sexual orientation, or religion. BPE is committed to seeking qualified applicants with disabilities and can provide reasonable accommodations during the application process and time of service upon request.
