ABOUT GREEN DOT

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. Green Dot operates 21 public charter schools in California (14 high schools, 7 middle schools) and one high school in Tennessee. In addition, we are in the planning stages of opening a middle school in Tennessee in 2015, and have been authorized to open up to 5 high schools and 5 middle schools in that state over the next several years. Green Dot has also been authorized to open two schools in Washington State over the next two years (a 6-8 in Tacoma in 2015 and a 6-12 in Seattle in 2016).  All of our schools are purposefully located in highest-need communities, are publicly funded and free to attend.

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%.
