At DreamBox, we believe all children can excel at learning, no matter where they start, where they live, or who they are. Along with district administrators, teachers, principals, and parents, we are dedicated to helping children realize their potential. Yet every child must be challenged, encouraged, and engaged in an individual way.
That's why we developed our revolutionary Intelligent Adaptive Learning technology, and combined it with a rigorous curriculum and an engaging game-like environment, to change the learning paradigm.
