What Does ANet Mean?

Achievement Network's Mission

Achievement Network, or ANet, provides actionable support to educators. For nearly 20 years, we’ve partnered with schools, districts, and systems to create classrooms where every student can thrive.

By Educators, For Educators

We provide leadership coaching, assessment and data tools, and implementation support designed to accelerate student learning.

Educational Equity for All

We are driven by our commitment to expanding educational equity for students from low-income backgrounds, students of color, and other underserved populations.

Leveraging and Sharing Data

Our reports and papers show others what we learn across our partner schools—in real-time. We collaborate with like-minded institutions around the nation to shape the future of teaching and learning.

Committed to Anti-Racism

For nearly a decade, we’ve been actively committed to anti-racism: dismantling systems of oppression by addressing structural, institutional, and interpersonal racism.

Our Core Values

At ANet, we are committed to living out our core values across our organization and with our partners. We acknowledge that systemic inequities impact student access to opportunities and that in order to ensure educational equity for all students, we must center on the experiences of those from marginalized communities to guide our work. We work to deepen our understanding of how race, class, power and privilege influence the education system as well as influence our own perspectives.
