At Kirby Middle, transformation is rooted in a culture of resilience, where students, parents, faculty/staff and community members demonstrate intentional effort to surpass academic as well as behavioral expectations, preparing students for college, leadership and life.

“I’m going to college. It wasn’t [always] a thing that was on my mind. When Green Dot came, they really stressed it - college, leadership, and life. They put it in my mind that if you want to be successful, you have to go to college.”

-Jeramiah, Class of 2016

About Green Dot Public Schools

Green Dot Public Schools is a network of public charter schools in Los Angeles, California; Memphis, Tennessee; and Tacoma, Washington.

Our middle schools offer grades six to eight, and our high schools offer grades nine to 12. Our schools are free and open to all students, like other public schools.

Eight Green Dot high schools are ranked among the top 10% of schools nationally by US News & World Report, with four being in the top 5%. 

Students enter Green Dot schools testing in the bottom 10% but are matching the graduation rate for the state.

These same students are 4 times more likely to graduate college-ready than students in neighboring schools.
