About Us

Leadership Public Schools' mission is to prepare urban students to succeed in college and to become leaders in their communities. The LPS approach - innovation, constant assessment, academic rigor, and commitment to providing individualized learning pathways - is transforming the lives of our students. Our commitment is to take underprepared students, many who will be first generation college students, and provide a clear realistic path to college. The LPS Network is built around collaborative innovation and distributed incubation.

Teachers and staff enjoy being a part of a "research and development" organization that addresses critical challenges in urban education. We incubate our teachers' innovative ideas, collect data, and scale ideas that work – both across our schools and across the country. We believe risk taking, collaboration, and high expectations are central ingredients to ensuring every LPS student receives the education he or she needs to blaze a successful path to and through college.

LPS strives to make our schools a rewarding place to work, teach, and learn. We create a professional learning community for staff, students and families that exemplify our values of commitment, respect, responsibility, valuing our students and employees and harnessing the power of our network to create a larger learning community.

We operate three public charter high schools in Richmond, Oakland, and Hayward, CA with our Home Office in downtown Oakland.
