Great schools and great teachers for every child.

A great education can change a life. We want to make sure every kid has the chance to succeed.


Our Mission

StudentsFirst is a nonprofit organization fighting for one purpose: to make sure every student in America has access to great schools and great teachers. We are driven by the belief that every child—regardless of background—can succeed if put in the right school environment. And every day we work to build an education system that makes this possible.

Our Impact

Our staff engages with communities around the country to raise awareness about the shortcomings of our education system and advocate for evidence-based solutions. We elevate the voices of parents, teachers, and community members to call for positive change and make sure that political leaders are putting the interests of students first. Driven by the power of our members, we have helped pass more than 130 student-centered laws and policies across the nation.
