Transform Your Teaching

Quest Forward Learning is a high school program that engages students through active learning, skill development, and meaningful feedback.

It was developed by Opportunity Education to incorporate evidence-based pedagogies and strategies backed by decades of research. The results are transformative. Highly engaged students are inspired to grow, and teachers can focus on the rewarding experience of helping students achieve success.

Don’t settle. You can improve your classroom dynamic.

  • Disengaged students don’t learn well, can harm others’ learning, and accelerate teacher burnout.
  • Unhappy parents pull their support.
  • Changing schools is challenging and exhausting.

  • Get back to what you love about teaching.

“At Girard, we found that Quest Forward Learning empowers our teachers to focus on student learning instead of delivering content. Project-based learning and feedback-focused assessments reignite curiosity and creativity, elements dormant in students after years of memorizing content and preparing for tests. We got the tools and support to transform into the kind of school our students need to realize that life is theirs to lead.”

— AJ Ernst, Dean, Girard College High School
