Matthew Riggan

Co-Founder
The Workshop School

I am a co-founder of the Workshop School, a non-selective, public, project-based high school within the School District of Philadelphia. As the Executive Director of the school's nonprofit arm, I primarily focus on R&D. The school is in its third year and still iterating and improving, with new design elements coming on line all the time. My job is to make sure the design, tools and systems we build are supporting the core work happening in classrooms.

Prior to helping launch the Workshop, I served as a Senior Researcher at the Consortium for Policy Research in Education at the University of Pennsylvania.
