Green Dot Public Schools is a non-profit organization with a mission to help transform the landscape of public education so all students graduate prepared for college, leadership and life.

We currently employ more than 1,000 dedicated, mission-driven teachers, administrators and staff to serve more than 10,000 students. Our academic model is designed to create small, safe, high-performing learning environments that meet individual student needs. We take the time to learn each student’s needs, and work with parents, teachers and counselors to help all students succeed.

Several of our California high schools have been recognized as “America’s Best” by Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report. In 2014, more than two-thirds (67.3%) of Green Dot California graduates completed the “A-G” course requirements needed to be considered “college-ready” by the University of California system. This college-ready graduation rate far exceeds the statewide average of 39.4%.

Green Dot operates 21 public charter schools in California (14 high schools, 7 middle schools), two in Tennessee and one in Washington State. In addition, we have been authorized to open up to 5 high schools and 5 middle schools in Tennessee over the next several years, as well as another school in Washington State. All of our schools are purposefully located in highest-need communities, are publically funded and free to attend.
