Developing World-Class Teachers

Building Institutional Excellence in the Classroom

CLASS® is a research-based method of measuring, evaluating, and improving teacher-student interactions.
Over 150 studies confirm CLASS works. Children in classrooms with higher CLASS scores have better social, emotional, and academic outcomes.
The CLASS methodology is backed by decades of academic research and over 200,000 teachers have been observed by certified CLASS observers. Teachstone® has worked with organizations in 34 states to create a culture of excellence that impacts students, staff, and communities.
Teachstone’s interactive trainings bring CLASS to life for teachers, coaches, and observers. Our online tools and exercises use intuitive technology to help you measure data, provide coaching, and, ultimately, improve teacher-student interactions.
