About the Organization Right At School provides safe, engaging, and meaningful in-school and extracurricular programs to enrich the lives of students, give parents peace of mind, and enable schools to focus on their academic mission.

We're passionate about providing a wide range of exceptional and affordable enrichment, child-care and recess programs before, during and after school to as many students, parents and schools as possible. In 2011 we served 200 students per day; today the number is over 20,000.

We succeed at this goal because we understand the synergy between two potentially competing ideals:

1) All education is local. Right At School is at our best when we operate as part of the local school and community fabric; and
2) Enrichment excellence requires systemic thinking and systematic execution. Right At School is at its best when we share proven strategies across all of our programs to improve quality, reduce costs, and continually innovate.

Together, these two ideals highlight four core values for Right At School: We are Mission-Led, Innovation-Driven, Locally-Inspired, and Efficiency-Obsessed. Driven by these four values, we strive to go the extra M.I.L.E.  
EOE Statement Right At School is an Equal Opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, military or veteran status, gender identity or expression, or any other basis protected by local, state, or federal law.
