We're transforming the classroom

Highfive collects community and classroom data and makes it actionable. We empower school staff to record, repair and reduce harmful classroom behaviors and coach students, parents, staff and administrators toward better outcomes.

Build positive relationships

Foster a sense of community and belonging among school members by prioritizing positive relationships and open communication.

Be the change, see the change

Track progress on the journey to becoming a safe, supportive, and inclusive environment where all individuals feel valued, respected, and heard.

Turn conflicts into connections

Equip staff and students with effective methods for resolving conflicts in a constructive and restorative manner, rather than resorting to punitive measures.

Our five pillars of connection

Our approach is firmly rooted in pioneering research, evidence-based methods and over a hundred years of collective education experience
