Graduate School History

The High Meadows Graduate School of Teaching & Learning was launched by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation in 2015 as the HM Academy. By providing competency-based master’s degree programs in teaching (and eventually in school leadership), this new graduate school is designed to transform the preparation of educators, reshaping both practice and policy nationally. In collaboration with MIT, the HM Graduate School also serves as an incubator and innovation lab, studying what works and why in preparing leading educators, and offering new ideas and models to meet the needs of 21st-century schools.
