by HighScope | October 8, 2020

With the recent announcement of Dr. Alejandra Barraza as the new president of HighScope, we thought that many of you, like us, would like to get to know more about her. We sat down and chatted with Dr. Barraza over Zoom and asked her a few questions. Watch our interview with Dr. Barraza and hear her vision for the future of HighScope.

Dr. Barraza joins HighScope with more than 15 years as an educator and administrator in the field of early childhood education. She shares HighScope’s passion for research and practice that improves children’s lives and its mission to ensure that every child has access to a high-quality, equitable early childhood education.

“My whole career, I’ve worked in underserved areas. What I’ve learned is that when we are able to offer high-quality early childhood education like HighScope, we start to change the dynamic of how people perceive underserved children, and we are giving these children a voice.”

— Dr. Alejandra Barraza

We invite you to share our excitement in welcoming Dr. Barraza to HighScope. She will continue to drive HighScope’s growth and innovation, bringing together our groundbreaking research and high-quality early childhood curricula to enable extraordinary outcomes for young children and educators.

We look forward to working together far into the future.
