Schools with many National Board Certified Teachers have strong professional communities, focused on leadership, learning, and collaboration. The culture of the school benefits from the common language of the National Board Standards, which centers discussions on professional practice and student learning. These schools are characterized by higher rates of teacher morale and retention and increased community involvement.

The presence of NBCTs also demonstrates the school’s commitment to excellence to students, parents, school boards, school districts and others. With increasing evidence about the positive impact of National Board Certification on student achievement, schools benefit by having NBCTs in their classrooms.
