Improving Schools Together

The Center for School Climate & Learning is dedicated to helping schools and school leaders provide quality education for ALL students. We help bring respect for ALL, joy, engagement and purpose to our partner schools by amplifying student and teacher voices. We help your school gather and use “actionable feedback” in the form of school climate and culture data to improve school climate, culture, safety and learning.

Relationships First

Our Mission

Founded in 2010, the Center for School Climate & Learning has helped hundreds of schools across the US become more respectful, effective places for learning.

We help schools achieve greater success with ALL students by promoting positive school climate and culture through personalized learning.  

  • We help schools improve by respecting, listening, and understanding the experiences of all members of their community.
  • We develop diverse student and adult leadership teams to work as partners to amplify student and teacher voices, and to understand the unique qualities of their school.
  • We help schools build relationships by working collaboratively  to apply our SafeMeasures Collaborative Action Research Process.
  • We customize leadership training and professional development based on each school’s unique strengths and needs.
  • We share and apply the latest research, which shows that positive ‘school culture’ leads to  healthy, respectful ‘school climate’, and these two factors are essential drivers of successful, effective school improvement.

A Word

From Our Director

We have learned so much over the last two decades about what makes a school effective by listening to a broad cross-section of students and dedicated, caring teachers. Here are a few key things that you have taught us:

One student told us, “School climate is what happens when the grown ups aren’t around.” We know that adults can have “blind spots” when it comes to what really happens in schools and classrooms. This is why adults need students as leadership partners.

Another student said, “I never knew I was smart until my mother watched me and my team win the Flagway Game.” If we truly want all children to succeed, then adults need to stop underestimating or ignoring the gifts that every child possesses.

“It is all about the relationships we have with our teachers,” one student said . “The relationships need to come first, then the learning happens.”

The more we listen to our students, the more effective we will all be as educators. One of our teacher partners said it best when she said, “When the teachers and the students are at the table together, it always brings out the best in the teachers.

We agree! When students and teachers work as partners, they can transform their schools, and have fun doing this essential work together!

– Bill Preble

“Thank you to the thousands of amazing teachers and students who have taught is so much about how to make schools better places for everybody.”

– Bill Preble
