A group of education leaders founded the non-profit Great Minds in 2008 to define and encourage content—rich comprehensive education for all American schoolchildren. In pursuit of that mission, Great Minds brings schoolteachers together in collaboration with scholars to craft exemplary instructional materials and share them with the field. Great Minds’ Eureka Math curriculum has won accolades at the state and national levels, and is the only comprehensive math curriculum aligned to the Common Core State Standards at every grade. The non-profit also just released Wit & Wisdom, a new English curriculum that taps the power of literature, history and science to meet the expectations of the new standards.
At Great Minds, we believe great education is the foundation of a great democracy. We believe that every child is capable of greatness. And it is our mission it to help teachers help children achieve it.
The Great Minds curricula aim to inspire joy in both teaching and learning. We give teachers the tools to take their students beyond rote memorization to give them a deeper and more complete understanding of the subject matter - setting kids up for success in high education, careers, and life.
