Revolution K12 was founded with the goal of creating smarter learning tools, designed to help students build core academic skills while learning analytical problem solving. Our vision is to help as many students as possible confidently graduate high school and realize they do have the potential to go to college.
We don’t expect yesterday's techniques to work for today's students. That’s why we relentlessly pursue technology and educational approaches to provide each student a differentiated program that immediately and uniquely addresses his or her needs. But the students are only part of the equation -- we also focus on making sure teachers have the data and tools necessary to provide relevant instruction.
Revolution K12 products reflect direct feedback from our schools and students. We are constantly talking to our partner schools to find out what they like, what they would like changed, and what new things they need to reach their goals. We’re inspired every day by being a small part of our partners’ successes.
Our team is dedicated to the vision that every student can succeed and is entitled to a solid foundation for lifelong academic confidence. Revolutionaries know there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing a child realize his or her potential. We're passionate about what we do and you'll experience this in every interaction you have with us.
Starting the Revolution
Revolution K12 founders, Jake Neuberg and Ramit Varma, met at UCLA's Anderson School of Business. Both men realized that while they had business backgrounds, they'd also both spent significant time as SAT prep tutors, Jake at Kaplan and Ramit at Princeton Review. They also agreed that something was missing from the other education companies. So Jake and Ramit came up with an idea … a revolutionary idea. Together, they decided to start a new education services company, one that was completely different from the market leaders of the day.
Jake and Ramit set out to turn the old model on its head, and as a result, schools nationwide began seeing increased student success with revolutionary web-based programs. Revolution K12 programs were not just books put into an electronic format, but real diagnostic assessment tools that armed teachers with the individual student data they’d been asking for. Students can no longer click until they get the right answers -- now students are given individual Mentor Sessions for each question they get wrong, much like a private tutoring session. Revolution Mentor Sessions identify academic gaps, reteach foundational skills, and increased student confidence.
Revolution K12, now a leader in the education services industry, has kept true to our entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to innovation. We have also kept true to our original mission to transform education and help as many students as possible. We believe where students grow up shouldn’t determine where they end up, so we work hard in the communities we service to make our programs accessible to all students who might benefit from them.
