Our Schools

We believe that great schools strengthen great neighborhoods and for far too long this country has systematically deprived many low-income neighborhoods the outstanding schools that send all kids to college on their way to choice-filled lives. We seek to be a strategic partner to school districts committed to building exceptional schools for all students.

Relay Lab Schools' management of neighborhood schools began at the invitation of the San Antonio Independent School District. In the 2018-19 school year, we are managing Ogden Elementary (Pre-K - 7th Grade; 670 students) and Storm Elementary (Pre-K - 5th Grade; 310 students).
