Reach every learner.
We optimize how educators work together to create engaging, individualized learning experiences for students marginalized by racism and bias.
We urgently work toward a public education system that is redesigned to maximize the potential inherent in every classroom, teacher, and student, so that every learner thrives no matter their race, income level, or learning style.
Our new look represents our foundational commitment to an inclusive and equitable education system. Blue Engine was founded on a vision of making classrooms across the United States more engaging and personalized; where all students could build empowering relationships with educators and receive more rigorous instruction tailored to their individual needs.
As we aim to strengthen the people and resources that already exist in those classrooms, we remain steadfast in our commitment to maximizing the potential inherent in every classroom, teacher, and student. Our new visual identity underscores our belief in an inclusive, equitable education system where every learner — no matter their race, income level, or learning style — feels seen, heard, and valued so that they can thrive.
Our Logo: The capital B includes an equal sign within it, which represents our belief in the infinite potential of all humans and the idea of equal opportunity for everyone. These are values that are core to our mission and that we bring to our work with partners every day.
Our Tagline: “Teach together. Reach every learner.” This phrase represents our model of optimizing multi-adult classrooms to engage all learners and our belief that every learner — especially those who have been historically marginalized by the education system — should thrive in the classroom regardless of race, income level, or learning ability.
We are currently updating our permanent website to reflect our new visual identity.

We partner with teachers, schools, districts, and education organizations to improve teacher collaboration in service of meeting all students’ needs.
We design each partnership intentionally and thoughtfully, elevating the great things that are already happening in communities and working to meet the specific needs of each partner. One partnership might involve building capacity in teachers and instructional leaders to use Blue Engine’s evidence-based approach, while another might focus on developing, adapting and sharing resources (including Blue Engine’s playbook and training modules) to support teaching teams to address student learning loss.

Algebra students in Blue Engine-designed classrooms gain the equivalent of six additional months of learning in a single school year when compared to non-Blue Engine classrooms. This translates to more than half a year of additional learning — 15 months of learning in a 9-month period.
These gains resulted in an 11 percentage point increase in Pass Rates on the New York State Algebra Regents Exam and a 7 percentage point increase in College Readiness Rates.
The values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism are fundamental to Blue Engine. We believe in the infinite potential of all humans and an education system that should provide equitable opportunity for all to seize that potential. In 2016, we revised our core values, articulating an explicit commitment to an anti-racist approach that disrupts the root causes of inequity. We believe that authentic anti-racism work must be focused on systems-level change and carried out by transformed individuals.
We continue to support teaching teams to build conscious mindsets and authentic relationships with students, creating learning experiences that are both meaningful and relevant. We also work with partners to interrogate and redesign programming and policies that will dismantle systemic barriers so that each and every student has an equitable opportunity to succeed.
In the spirit of a nation that must be bridging divisions, talking honestly, and healing together, we launched a Blue Engine conversation series called Conversations Beyond the Performative in 2020. The conversation series shares a set of deeply personal, honest conversations about experiences with race, privilege, and power. By elevating different individual journeys, we aim to show what the journey towards equity and justice looks and feels like for various members of the Blue Engine community. We invite you to join us in dialogue about the ways in which racist ideas permeate our institutions, lives, and classrooms. Reach out with thoughts, questions or feedback.
