Bright Star Schools

Bright Star Schools is a free, publicly funded and open enrollment non-profit organization with seven public charters in urban Los Angeles. Across all of our Bright Star sites, over 90% of our students are eligible for free and reduced lunch.

Bright Star students achieve academic excellence, accept responsibility for their futures, and embrace school as family. We offer students the opportunity to develop their unique talents and ambitions in a supportive, collaborative environment, so they are prepared for college and career, and to lead purposeful, fulfilling lives.

We are people-first as an organization, and we are students-first across all of our school sites. We are collaboratively working to prepare our scholars to be lifelong learners and leaders—to discover ways to create positive change for themselves, their families and their communities. All of our students participate in a program that features rigorous academics and rich life experiences, and the framework to our success is our core operating principles, which are high expectations, attention to detail, clearly defined standards of accountability, and continuous improvement.
