About Attuned Education Partners
Attuned builds the capacity of PK-12 organizations to drive educational equity and excellence for underserved students. Our team of practitioners partners with school systems to prioritize, tailor, and implement a diverse set of proven practices. We blend rigor and empathy, planning and implementation, district and charter expertise, and aspirations of quality and scale.

“There always are folks who offer packaged solutions, but the best support providers are people who have lived and practiced the work and actually know there are no easy packaged solutions. The Attuned team offers deep expertise and thought partnership that is individualized and contextualized” (Aleesia Johnson, Superintendent of Indianapolis Public Schools).

Founded in 2015, Attuned has earned the reputation as a trusted advisor, coach, and facilitator to schools and school systems across the country, as evidenced by our net promoter score of 70. We are fortunate to have built a team with a deep connection to our mission and commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and antiracism (DEIA), as evidenced by our consistently strong Gallup Q12 results.

We’re launching a software team to build several applications that will support and expand the service we provide and the impact we have.
