About AST

Academic School Turnaround  (AST) was formed in response to a critical need for a comprehensive and sustainable approach to whole school improvement challenges. Our successful approach is designed to build and support those elements that effectively improve student academic achievement; leadership and instruction.Those are the two primary factors that can effectively turn around a failing school. Research concludes that leadership is a crucial determinant of school success and a critical component of a successful turn-around; second only to instruction among school-based factors in its impact on learning.

AST is a school improvement company that utilizes research based, corrective action strategies and sustainable systems of practice to effectively turn around low performing schools. We provide an extensive program of leadership development; teacher effectiveness training and data aligned mastery-based instructional strategies.
