Start Small, Move Quickly, and Play Nicely with Others: How to Make Growth and Achievement Unavoidable Welcome to Breakthrough Schools -- we're a new kind of nonprofit public school network pioneered in Cleveland, Ohio. We have seven 100% tuition-free campuses throughout the city with distinct culture & curriculum led by top educators and dedicated staff. 3,200 students and families already attend our schools, and we have expanded to make room for at least 300 more! We believe big dreams start young. Breakthrough Schools is ranked #10 nationally in reading and #13 nationally in math. Stanford University's CREDO ranked us the #1 network in Ohio. We are 1:1 with devices across our network and are proud to announce that we have been selected as part of the Verizon Innovative Learning Schools Cohort 5. How are we achieving these results in our urban network? We will share how we started small, moved quickly, and play nicely with others.
