Award-winning educator Tina M. Owen-Moore details the beliefs and practices that made the Alliance School of Milwaukee the focus of national attention as the first school to open with the mission of being bully-free. The Alliance Way illustrates how creating a safe, inclusive, and academically challenging environment goes beyond a programming approach that targets bullying to a more holistic one in which building relationships takes center stage.


The Alliance Way not only tells the story of this special school, but delivers a mind-set and set of practices that can be used in all schools to fulfill the promise that all lives have equal value. — Marty Lexmond, superintendent, West Allis–West Milwaukee School District

Here is radical school reform for the twenty-first century: treat all students with dignity, spend more time preventing harm than addressing it, and support students to thrive, not just survive. The Alliance Way offers 'an extraordinary welcome' not just to the students who are lucky enough to go there, but for everyone who, like Owen-Moore, believes that school can be different. — Elizabeth A. City, senior lecturer on education, Harvard Graduate School of Education
