The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS), was founded as a non-profit dedicated to improving teaching and student learning:
- Just as teachers differentiate instruction for their students, the National Board process differentiates for teachers. There are 25 certificates available across various disciplines, age ranges, and developmental levels.
- 97% of teachers change their teaching after going through the National Board process.
- More than a decade of research from across the country confirms that students taught by National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) outperform their peers taught by non-NBCTs.
The National Board Resource Center (NBRC) is available to work with schools and districts to support efforts to build a community of National Board Certified Teachers. Email Director Kristin Mason at
