Vision & Mission

10-YEAR VISION:

25,000 more Clark County students will attend great urban public schools by 2025.

MISSION:

At Opportunity 180, we believe that all children deserve great public schools. We find it unacceptable that nearly 83,000 children in Clark County attend low-performing public schools and are committed to solving this problem. As a nonprofit organization, we offer resources to launch and support high-performing public schools, invest in organizations and leaders that will provide students with outstanding educational opportunities, and help prove that every child can achieve, regardless of ethnicity, zip code or family income.

History

Opportunity 180 launched in 2015 to transform the lives and futures of Clark County students by providing them with equitable access to the best possible public education.  Upon launching, Opportunity 180 joined Education Cities to partner with like-minded organizations across the country committed to region-based educational equity efforts.

Our name, Opportunity 180, represents our vision—to bring transformational, 180 degree change to support students and families in our community.  We know that every student has the ability to succeed and we work relentlessly to create the conditions that provide students with schools that set them up for success.
