Based on the work of educational leader Mike Miles, Focal Point has helped teachers and administrators in over 50 school districts work more effectively and raise student academic proficiency.

Focal Point also conducts education conferences in Colorado. Our team brings together professional developers, experts, and national keynoters to provide first-rate training for teachers and administrators.

Focal Point focuses on how to reform schools and get results. Consequently, its work is geared to the practitioner and those who are currently conducting the hard work of school improvement and growth.
