Battelle for Kids was established through a partnership with the Ohio Business Roundtable and supported by an initial grant from Battelle Memorial Institute. The organization was created in 2001 to champion improved student achievement in Ohio. We expanded our services in 2005 to offer a wide array of school-improvement services to educators nationwide.
Battelle for Kids is headquartered in Columbus and has a satellite office in Houston, Texas. Today, we receive philanthropic, public and private funds to support major education-related initiatives and research designed to enhance educators' efforts to accelerate all students' academic progress.
