We believe that a high-quality education is a bridge to opportunity and a driver of economic mobility like no other. As schools around the country prepare to welcome students, and students zip up their backpacks and cross items off their back-to-school lists, let's celebrate them and their teachers and leaders. Working together, they're creating student-ready schools that are prepared to help all kids succeed.

This back-to-school season, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is sharing stories about some incredible schools that are using data-driven insights to support teachers and students, and combining that with high expectations that help all kids reach their full potential. Take a look.
