Public School Partnerships

Harvard’s Public School Partnerships (PSP) team works with educators, parents, and students within Boston Public Schools (BPS), at community-based organizations, and with local residents to offer professional development opportunities for in-school and out-of-school educators, and to provide access to Harvard programs and resources for the Gardner Pilot Academy (GPA), the Jackson Mann K-8 School, and other BPS Network D schools.

PSP also works to engage local families in parent workshops and events that support student success. PSP works with students from the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) and across Harvard to provide educational programs and resources to principals, teachers, parents, and students at local schools.
