School Partnerships

Harvard helps schools and community-based organizations in Boston and Cambridge boost learning opportunities for young people through research-based learning strategies, tools, and professional development for teachers and school leaders during in-school and out-of-school time.

Members of the Harvard community consistently interact with students, teachers, and staff across local school systems.  Harvard students serve as tutors, Harvard faculty offer professional development, and Harvard research aims to inform approaches to learning and educational policy.  In these ways and others, Harvard aims to affirm its deep commitment to the health and improvement of public education.
