Participating Schools Implementing Brain-Based Learning and teaching Strategies:

Over the years, thousands of teachers have participated in a Jensen Learning Workshop or the Learning Brain Expo in order to gain an understanding of brain-based learning.

Many are in schools that are quietly succeeding with little or no fanfare. Below is a list of a few of the schools that have been in the process of implementing this shift. We make no guarantees that the staff, school or test scores are perfect; however, these schools may be rewarding places to teach where teachers make a difference in the lives of their students.
