DescriptionEmpower People to Use Data to Increase Student
Schoolzilla is a product group within Renaissance whose mission is
to change millions of students' lives by enabling people to use
data to run great schools. Teachers and school leaders need lots of
data to make good decisions for their students, but most of them
can't get the data they need in any kind of useful, actionable
format. Schoolzilla's team of developers, data visualizers,
seasoned educators and K-12 experts have done just that: we've made
data easy to find, understand, and act on for school districts
everywhere. We've already helped thousands of schools make better,
faster decisions with our platform.

Together, Teammates Matter, Equity At The Center, and Intellectual
