3rd Annual Convening of World-Leading Schools

America Achieves is thrilled to announce its 3rd Annual Convening of World-Leading Schools. The convening is an exciting event where Global Learning Network (GLN) members come together to learn from one another as well as top-performing educational systems and schools across the world to drive change in instructional practices and school culture towards deeper student learning. This year, we have invited delegations from Singapore, England, Wales, Spain, Poland, and Russia. During the convening, participants will have the unique opportunity to:


  • Understand current trends in education across the world from our keynote speaker, Andreas Schleicher, Director for the Directorate of Education and Skills at the OECD;
  • Interact with other Global Learning Network members to discuss key learnings from the OECD Test for Schools and best practices while beginning to develop plans for improvement; and
  • Engage in discussions with representatives from world-leading countries about the successful education practices that have been implemented in these countries.

This opportunity is made possible through a strong partnership involving the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), creator of the international PISA exam and this PISA-based assessment; America Achieves, a non-profit accelerator that manages the Global Learning Network; generous philanthropic contributors; and the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA), a global not-for-profit educational services organization and the official U.S. Test Service Provider for the OECD Test for Schools.

An agenda is below. If you have any questions regarding the convening, please contact Elyse Rossi at elyse.rossi@americaachieves.org.
