About Us

Turnaround Arts is a public-private partnership led by the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in partnership with the White House, U.S. Department of Education, and several private foundations. It is managed by Americans for the Arts.

The Turnaround Arts: Bridgeport program is a part of Bridgeport Public Schools, the second largest school district in Connecticut. Located in the largest city in Connecticut, the school district serves just over 30 schools. Turnaround Arts: Bridgeport grew from the success and experience of Roosevelt School, one of eight schools that participated in the pilot phase of Turnaround Arts. With the support of the Bridgeport community, Turnaround Arts: Bridgeport is excited to help realize Bridgeport Public Schools’ mission of readying all its students to graduate college-ready and prepared to succeed in life.
