Green Dot Public Schools

Green Dot Public Schools is a non-profit network of public charter schools helping to transform the public education system so that ALL students graduate prepared for college, leadership, and life. Our schools are founded on an unwavering belief in the potential of all students, and there are four key elements to our school model that help us unlock the inherent potential in every student we serve: quality teaching and instruction, a college-going culture, a focus on fostering leadership and life skills, and a focus on eliminating barriers to learning. We have 20 schools and close to 12,000 students across Los Angeles.  Our schools are located in some of the most underserved communities that have been denied access to high-quality educational opportunities, and we seek to prove that it is possible to close the access and opportunity gap that exists between low-income students and their more affluent peers.

 

Part of what differentiates Green Dot is our intense focus on truly serving ALL students; our collaboration with reform-minded unions; and our work focused on large-scale turnarounds of schools formerly run by the districts; and our ability to take on the toughest challenges with the same public funding received by traditional district schools but accomplishing very different results.  Green Dot California’s results are undeniable.  Nine of our high schools have been ranked among the top schools in the country.  We have three California Distinguished schools and 3 California Gold Ribbon schools, and several of our schools have been recipients of the CORE Districts’ Academic Growth Awards, which honor schools having the greatest impact on student achievement. Additionally, Green Dot’s first turnaround, Alain LeRoy Locke College Preparatory Academy, was named Charter School of the Year by the California Charter Schools Association in 2019.
