College. Leadership. Life.


The mission of Green Dot Public Schools is to help transform public education so all students graduate prepared for college, leadership, and life.

We are focused on graduating students and fully preparing them for college. In addition, Green Dot is dedicated to helping parents organize and expect more of their neighborhood schools.

We achieve better student outcomes and higher graduation rates serving students who need the most, lower per-pupil funding, and a unionized workforce.

We are the leading independent non-profit public school operator in Los Angeles and one of the top three largest in the nation.

The U.S. Department of Education has featured Green Dot as a national leader in school turnarounds, and we are the only school network in the country to lead the turnaround of a large high school (3,000+ students)
