Locke Family of Schools

Green Dot Public School is a non-profit organization founded upon the idea that every child in every community deserves to go to a great school.  At Green Dot, our teachers, administrators and support staff have an unwavering belief in every student’s potential – we do whatever it takes to prepare all students for college, leadership, and life.

Starting in 2000 ,with one school serving 140 students, we now educate over 10,000 students in 14 high schools and 5 middle schools in Los Angeles.   In 2014, Green Dot plans to open one turnaround high school in Memphis, Tennessee.  Over the course of the next five years, Green Dot plans to expand the Memphis region to include five turnaround high schools and five turnaround middle schools.
