Every Child. Every Neighborhood.




Today, more than half the kids in Houston public schools aren’t getting the education they need to learn and thrive. That’s not only hurting their future—it’s hurting our city’s future. 

At Good Reason Houston we’re working every day to increase the number of children learning in great public schools in Houston ISD. Throughout the Houston Independent Schools District, including our Houston charter schools, we’re accelerating progress, supporting teachers, and promoting courageous decision making to transform our schools, and our city. 

Sign up today to receive news, emails and updates about our vision and our work, and to learn about all the ways you can help. We’re in this together—and we’re in it for Houston kids! 

When you sign up to receive emails and updates from Good Reason Houston, you’ll join our mission to increase the number of students learning in great public schools. 

Learning in a high-quality school changes the trajectory of a child’s life. When schools deliver for students: 

  • Students are more likely to read on grade level.
  • The average ACT score exceeds the national average.
  • More than half of students enroll in a postsecondary institution.
  • Students are twice as likely to complete a postsecondary degree.

At Good Reason Houston, we develop transformational partnerships to accelerate district transformation. We partner with superintendents and leadership teams to improve existing schools and create new high-performing ones. 

Our goal is to continually drive our schools with the talent, leadership and community support needed to ensure every child has access to a high-quality school. Good Houston schools means a better future for all of us!
