Welcome to the future of Middle School

What We Offer

The Tarrant Institute provides a variety of services to help schools make the transition to engaging, technology-rich teaching and learning.

In exchange for their substantial commitment to a new vision for teaching and learning, we offer our partner schools intensive professional development, leadership preparation and planning, and small grants for innovative technologies -- all free of charge.

To the broader community, we conduct extensive research, evaluation, dissemination and outreach.
