Why the Marzano High Reliability Schools Framework?

The Marzano High Reliability Schools™ framework is based on 40 years of research and defines five progressive levels of performance that a school must master to achieve high reliability status:

  • Level 1: Safe and Collaborative Culture
  • Level 2: Effective Teaching in Every Classroom
  • Level 3: Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum
  • Level 4: Standards-Referenced Reporting
  • Level 5: Competency-Based Education

Each level has specific tangible benefits that will increase your school’s effectiveness and improve the outcomes for learners. Our experts and authors can support you and your staff every step of the way as you work to achieve all five levels of reliability and drive significant improvements in both academic and social and emotional learning achievement.
