The Green Acres Academy

Introduction

One of the top emerging school chains in Mumbai, The Green Acres Academy (TGAA) is a network of schools serving thousands of students in Mumbai. TGAA intends on broadening its existing network of two institutions and establishing multiple low, middle, and high-cost schools in Mumbai and Maharashtra over the next five years.

Scope of Work

In order to support the organic and robust expansion of the school’s network, A2Q is collaborating with the core leadership team to develop an articulate vision and long-term strategy, monitoring and evaluation system, and human resource development and management frameworks. Based on our success with the above engagements, A2Q is now supporting the school’s growth very closely by overseeing the quality of all educational programs being delivered, as well as the performance of leaders and staff, across TGAA’s chain of schools.

Testimonial

It has been a pleasure working with the A2Q team as they are able to understand the needs of Indian schools and help them incorporate global best practices. I have found their team to be motivated, dedicated, and extremely well researched. Their passion is obvious to anyone who interacts with them. They also bring organisational rigour to their assignments, which is surprisingly rare in education consultants. A2Q has helped us make some key changes in our work flows and our outlook as a school.
