About Open Architects

Open Architects (OA) is a Massachusetts-based organization that supports school districts, municipalities, and education non-profits by providing custom-built visualization dashboards to give leaders the information they need to make data-informed decisions.

We believe that high-quality systems and effective use of data are critical foundations that enable excellent schools. OA’s dashboards seamlessly collect, combine, transform, analyze, and display data from disparate data sources to provide insights to school leaders. Staffed by former practitioners, OA creates the analytical tools and provides the insights that we wish we had when we worked in districts and municipalities.
