A TrueSchool Design Team is comprised of 3-4 teacher leaders + 1 principal/school leader

Fellows join a TrueSchool Cohort of 10-20 school teams: a powerful professional learning community of visionary, like-minded education leaders 


The TrueSchool Fellowship is a unique professional learning experience and supports educators leading a wide range of change and innovation efforts. There are 3 core components: Studios, Coaching, Fieldwork. For more information on our programs, click here.
