Challenge Success

Challenge Success is an organization based in Palo Alto, Calif., that helps schools make research-backed changes to improve children’s mental health.

OUR MISSION
Challenge Success partners with schools, families, and communities to embrace a broad definition of success and to implement research-based strategies that promote student well-being and engagement with learning.

OUR VISION
We believe that all students should be valued for their own interests, unique talents, and individual definitions of success.

We find that extrinsic metrics such as grades, test scores, and selective college admissions have become the primary markers of success in too many communities.

We know that this narrow definition of success can interfere with healthy child development and effective education, leaving many kids feeling stressed, marginalized, or misunderstood.

We want all kids to do well in school and to master certain skills and concepts, but a largely singular focus on academic achievement has resulted in a lack of attention to other attributes of a successful life.

Our work helps to transform the student experience and foster learners who are balanced, engaged, and prepared for the wide variety of opportunities and challenges they will face as adults.
