Aperture Education Testimonials

We are honored to work with districts, schools, and out-of-school-time programs around the world who show a commitment to SEL by partnering with Aperture Education to create social and emotional transformations for the educators and youth they serve.

Teaching doesn’t happen until love and respect happen in the classroom. And I’m grateful for this program and all of these different strategies that help develop that and give us the data to back it up. Over the course of 2 years, our SEL pilot schools reported that referrals had been cut in half and out-of-school suspension assignments had been reduced by 76%.

Humble ISD
Humble, Texas

Overall, I think the Aperture Student Portal provides students with a great dose of self-awareness. We talk a lot about perception, self-concept, self-esteem, and growth mindset. This is a great opportunity to use SEL in conjunction with those frameworks.

Grundy Center Community Schools
Grundy Center, Iowa

The Educator Social-Emotional Reflection and Training (EdSERT) program provides a common knowledge for the leaders and teachers in our school district. Together, we are building our competence through a time of learning, self-reflection, and application.
