About Us

Great Public Schools Now is a new independent nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the growth and expansion of public schools that can close achievement and opportunity gaps and attain strong academic results for students from low-income backgrounds in the greater Los Angeles area.  

GPSN is recruiting its founding team, who will lead the development and execution of a multi-year plan to dramatically increase the number of high-quality public schools serving low-income communities and communities of color in Los Angeles. Leveraging a significant grantmaking budget, GPSN will (1) invest in the launch or expansion of highquality public schools; (2) help schools find and afford adequate facilities; (3) develop new approaches to teacher and school leader recruitment and preparation; and (4) create avenues for greater parent and community participation in the issues affecting public education in our city.  

Great Public Schools Now’s mission is deeply rooted in our belief in educational equity and that every child in our city – irrespective of the zip code they live in – deserves a high-quality education that prepares him/her for college, career, and life.
