When teachers lead, schools win.
Green Dot Public Schools is one of the leading independent non-profit public school operators in the nation with middle and high schools in Memphis, Tennessee. Across our network, teachers are key decision-makers and help achieve better outcomes and higher graduation rates for all students.
Teaching 6th-12th grades, we are focused on graduating students fully prepared for college, leadership and life. We are dedicated to helping parents organize and transforming parents’ expectations of their neighborhood schools.
We believe in supporting teachers both personally and professionally, so you can take the lead in shaping the future of public education.
Since 1999, we’ve been raising the bar in education reform, helping thousands of high-risk students in the nation’s underserved communities succeed in college, leadership, and life.
Even as the U.S. currently faces a crisis in education, Green Dot is one organization that’s making a difference. Want just one example? In contrast to students attending other schools in similar neighborhoods, Green Dot students are nearly four times as likely to graduate from high school.

"We are by far the greatest staff. Beyond supporting each other, we hold each other accountable.
We borrow ideas from each other on how to be greater in our own classrooms.”
Shea Lewis, Bluff City High School
“It’s been noted we have the highest retention of teachers and the reason is the administration. We have a wonderful administrative staff that supports teachers 100 percent."
