Propel's six Promising Principles and supporting Powerful Practices provide the structure and common language that are used to speak of the reasons that we have been able to achieve such high levels of success. When Propel first opened its doors in 2003, our "Pioneers" did not have such a framework upon which to base their work. Instead, Propel's founders opened a school in the basement of an old hospital with a vision of operating high performing public schools and providing choices to families who otherwise would not have them.
