Foundation for Excellent Schools (FES) is a national, nonprofit organization that partners with public schools in high-need communities to raise student aspirations and performance.

Working with students, administrators, teachers, parents, community members, local businesses, and colleges, FES assists schools to develop principles and practices that enable them to cultivate and sustain a culture of achievement. In short, our mission is to encourage every student to take "One More Step."

Since 1991, we have helped more than 140,000 students in 270 schools throughout 25 states earn better grades, score higher on standardized tests, graduate from high school, pursue post-secondary opportunities, and make meaningful contributions to their schools and communities.
