National Board

Matthew Wunder is the Chief Executive Officer and a Co-Founder of Da Vinci Schools, a L.A-based charter network comprised of four high schools, a K-8 homeschool-hybrid model, and a college completion support program serving 2,100 students from 108 zip codes. Da Vinci Schools are known for a deep commitment to developing responsive new school models that incorporate college and career readiness, real world learning aligned to workforce needs, competency-based learning, and innovative industry and higher ed partnerships. In 2017, Da Vinci Schools formally launched Da Vinci RISE High, supported by an XQ ‘Super School’ prize, to help homeless, foster and other high need students tackle their academic, social/emotional, and personal needs. Matt believes that greater alignment between K-12 schools, colleges, and employers is needed to ensure students are prepared for postsecondary success and 21st century jobs.
