With Hero K12, schools create a positive school climate and culture. Hero is a school-wide system to capture and collect data, and with the data, allow schools to replace traditional discipline policies with initiatives that emphasize and recognize positive behaviors. Classroom teachers, administration, parents and the students themselves all have significant impact on learner development. Meet school heroes and see their turnaround stories at Herok12.com

- Karessa Parish, Teacher and Campus PBIS Coordinator, Cedar Creek Middle School
"Hero has made a dramatic impact on our school and classrooms in just one semester. We now have a way to track, hold students accountable, and focus on positive behavior that is efficient and accurate. The parents love the quick messages they get and our teachers are happy. If you want to look at data, our tardy to class daily rate is down to about 20% of what it was initially!."
- Renee DiBiasio, Assistant Principal, Cleveland School of the Arts
"You’re seeing students make the right decisions more often and more frequently because they are incentivized [with Hero points] to do so.” - Dr. Nikolai Vitti, Former Superintendent Duval County Public Schools
Going school-wide [with Hero] makes it easy for me to streamline the PBIS process for my teachers and communicate that to the students." - Roger Snow, Assistant Principal, Ben Lomond High School
"Hero in cooperation with a Hero points student store has had an incredible impact on the "fence sitters" in our student population."
- Mr. Harris, Math Teacher, Indian Springs High School
"I can see the classes that are consistently recognizing their students with Hero points and there is a direct correlation with the positive classroom culture." - Thomas Schroede, Principal, Margate Elementary
"Students want boundaries, to know how to fit into their world. They want to know the limits. Hero allows us to establish and keep the boundaries firms, consistent, and fair."
