About Learning Sciences International

Learning Sciences International (LSI) serves the K-12 education sector with a mission to empower K-12 leaders to reimagine school success and achieve sustainable school performance. We are particularly proud of our work to successfully turnaround persistently failing schools and help other schools move from good to great.

We work with school districts to create a culture of rigorous instruction focused on successful classroom learning, affirmed through human-centered research, metrics, and programs that revitalize classroom instruction and student learning

LSI is an integrated services delivery organization with its own software development, researchers, content development, book publishing, and national consultancy to implement solutions. We are transitioning to a team-based culture drawing from agile and scrum processes to align and empower work teams to achieve goals and deliver value to customers.

LSI develops and delivers the industry best metrics, analytics, consulting and training for complex client engagements including human capital systems, turnaround schools, demonstration schools, leadership development, curriculum and assessment systems.

Although we are mission-driven, the headquarters office is located in sunny West Palm Beach just a few miles from the beaches. Enjoy endless summer for golfing, fishing, watersports, and relaxing with tropical sunsets while fulfilling a worthy mission.
