All children deserve an honest, high-quality, and student-centered education that prepares them for college, careers, and life. Reaching Higher NH provides decision makers, educators, and communities with the tools they need to deliver on that promise.

Coming Soon: Statewide Educator Survey Results

Reaching Higher, in partnership with 15 professional organizations, has recently completed a statewide survey of educators and school staff who are changing positions or school districts, leaving the state, or leaving the field altogether. The survey closed in late June 2022, and we expect to publish results in Fall 2022. Thank you to all those who have completed the survey: Your input will inform critical conversations around how we can support our educators and school staff. The survey was co-developed with the Women Educators Leading Learning (WELL) group.

Strengthening and Diversifying the Teaching Profession

Reaching Higher is supporting critical conversations around teacher recruitment, retention, and diversity.
