OPPORTUNITY

Green Dot is dedicated to providing high-quality instruction, central to the academic success of our students. Our teachers excel in delivering a superior education grounded in the rigorous requirements of Common Core State Standards and the expectations of state college systems.


Our approach embodies the principles of intellectual preparation and universal design for learning, offering accessible and effective education for all learners, regardless of their learning styles or abilities. Additionally, different modes of collaboration, including vertical articulation are a key component in our strategy, aligning teaching methods across different grade levels to guarantee a coherent and progressive learning experience.


Green Dot’s curriculum, while adhering strictly to the Common Core State Standards, allows teachers the flexibility to craft innovative and engaging lesson plans. This approach ensures that every student is actively and effectively involved in their learning, with lessons tailored to meet rigorous academic standards while also addressing individual learning needs and styles. We are committed to ensuring our assessment practices reflect student learning and achievements and that we are equipping every student, irrespective of their background or circumstances, with the opportunities and support necessary to transform these opportunities into accomplishments.


This mission is the driving force behind our thriving professional development and growth programs, which support and challenge teachers to maximize their impact in the classroom and advance their careers as educational leaders. Acknowledging the importance of professional empowerment, Green Dot teachers are proudly represented by the Asociación de Maestros Unidos (AMU), an affiliate of the California Teachers’ Association and the National Education Association.
