Making Wellness the Foundation of Learning in School Communities

Effective to Great Education is an emerging education technology research startup that is building wellness solutions for school communities. We focus on developing tools to deliver consistent culturally responsive and trauma-informed mental health and social emotional education, practice and support of whole child development in schools. We build technology solutions to disrupt systemic education issues by making wellness the foundation of learning in schools today. Our goal is to not only generate excellent academic results for all kids, but also successful life outcomes.

Home: Welcome



Our aim is to make wellness the foundation of learning in schools. We change how schools manage student social emotional wellbeing as we know it today. We do this by incorporating high quality culturally responsive trauma-informed social emotional and mental health education into the school community.


Our solutions are designed to advance education equity and social impact. We ensure that our technologies are geared to reach and support all types of school communities including the most historically marginalized.
