Andre’s Perspective

The Andre Agassi Foundation for Education is more than a school or a set of beliefs. It is a movement committed to transforming education so that all children have a shot at success.

We see education as the key to opportunity in life. But as U.S. students continue to fall behind other countries – and as Nevada’s students continue to perform at the lowest levels in the country – these opportunities diminish.

We believe we can do better. And we believe we must do better.

Every child deserves an outstanding education, and to provide it, public schools here in Nevada and across the country need better resources and accountability. Our own experience operating a public, K-12 charter school has taught us that to be successful, the two must go hand-in-hand. We also know that when children are placed in an environment where expectations are high and excellence is the standard, they embrace it.

We believe in children. And when you say you believe, you have to act.

Each of us – parents, advocates, educators and legislators – has a responsibility to help children fulfill their potential and achieve their dreams. That is why I have devoted my life to this work.

Please take your time browsing our website. See what we have built, what we are achieving and where we are heading. I hope you will join us on the path to excellence.

“We believe every child has the right to thrive.”
