Every Child. Every Neighborhood.


Good Reason Houston leads a citywide effort to improve public school quality, as measured by the number of high-quality public school seats available to Houston students and families. We do this by working closely with school districts and the community to turn around low-performing schools, create new, high-quality schools, support school districts to run better, and shape public opinion about what’s possible for all kids.




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 improve public schools in Houston. Throughout the city, we’re accelerating progress, supporting teachers, and promoting courageous decision-making to transform our schools and our city.

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!
