School leaders have a critical role in building cultures that invite and challenge all students, including those who are part of communities that have been underrepresented in advanced education. We connect school leaders to help them learn from each other and we provide essential tools for the growth, cultivation and success of their AP programs.

Leaders Create Change

School leaders' engagement is critical to ensuring all students are set up for academic success. NMSI partners with schools and districts to form strong teams of leaders who foster inclusive cultures across their school systems.

Teams Create Sustainability

Cultural change takes 5-7 years to stick, but the average administrator stays at a high school for less than two years. That's why NMSI helps establish strong leadership teams to sustain long-term success.

Leadership Development Workshops

Foundations of Leadership Series exclusive to NMSI program partners

We offer 11 one-hour workshops for leadership teams to learn and engage in rich discussions about culture, access, partnerships and sustainability. These workshops help teams drill down to their ultimate "why" and design a Strategic Action Plan to achieve success in their community.

Each session of the series builds upon the previous. If you're new to NMSI, we encourage you to attend as many as you can. If you've attended one of our previous trainings, choose which topic(s) your would like to focus on. 

These workshops are exclusive to NMSI program partners. See how your district can get involved.

Practitioner Perspectives open to everyone

NMSI invites leaders to share successes they are finding through their Strategic Action Plans. Each session includes a short presentation, Q&A and small group breakouts to discuss how those leaders' solutions might apply to other schools and systems.

Are you a NMSI leader interested in sharing your success? Reach out to Will McDowell, Sr. Manager of Leadership Development.
