Green Dot Public Schools
Green Dot Public Schools (www.greendot.org) is the leading charter school operator in Los Angeles, one of top three largest in the nation, and an important catalyst for education reform in the State of California. We are the only charter school operator in the country to lead the wholesale take-over and turn-around of a 3,000-plus student high school. The U.S. Department of Education featured Green Dot as a national leader in school turnarounds. Green Dot currently employs over 700 dedicated mission-driven personnel to serve more than 10,000 students.
Green Dot’s mission is to transform public education in Los Angeles so that every student can graduate, prepared for college, leadership, and life. We achieve this mission by running a network of middle and high schools in low-income communities and influencing the Los Angeles school district to transform its failing secondary schools into clusters of small successful schools.
