MEET THE TEAM

The Big Picture Learning team is made up of founders of the organization, some who have served as advisors and leaders of network schools, more than a handful of BPL alumni and more. And despite our differences in path, geographic location and hobbies, what pulls us together is a dedication toward equity and a fierce desire to evolve our educational system to one that steadfastly puts students at the center of their own learning. Does that sound like you? Check to see if there are any opportunities to join our team or our network.
