Supporting Student Achievement

Individualized solutions to improve student outcomes

Branching Minds is an innovative education technology company. Its Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) platform combines actionable data, collaboration tools, and evidence-based solutions for educators to provide students with the right academic and social-emotional support to succeed. The platform equips teachers, specialists, and administrators with resources to identify students’ individual learning needs, offer research-backed intervention support, and track students’ progress. Since its inception in 2013, Branching Minds has positively impacted over 1.5 million students. Today the company is a trusted partner to more than 217,000 educators at over 3,000 schools in 250 districts across 33 states.

Impact-aligned partnership

Branching Minds selected Double Impact as its partner of choice for the next phase of growth, in large part because of the impact alignment between the two teams. Branching Minds was founded to meaningfully improve student outcomes through improved MTSS practice, which aligns with Double Impact’s goals to address gaps in skills and educational achievement with evidenced-based, systematic approaches.

Additionally, we believe Double Impact’s experience and demonstrated success in the K-12 education technology sector, including with TeachTown and Presence, will deliver valuable learnings and best practices to Branching Minds and help accelerate growth.

A proven solution supporting student improvement

Branching Minds is an industry pioneer in an important and growing segment of the education market. Educators face unparalleled declines in student achievement, which are exacerbated by the continued learning loss experienced in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Branching Minds’ comprehensive solution provides a holistic view of a student’s needs and progress and is designed to integrate into the workflow of teachers. Educators cite the solution’s ease of use and quality of progress monitoring tools as key value-add differentiators.
