Green Dot truly believes that every student, whatever their circumstances, holds the innate potential to achieve their goals and succeed in college, leadership, and life.

We acknowledge that the belief may often be challenged and tested—either by personal experience in the classroom or external societal pressures—but we are unwavering in our commitment to consistently approach every student not in terms of what they lack, but in terms of what is possible.

Transformation Schools

Transformation schools, sometimes referred to as turnaround schools, are public schools once operated by a school district that are now operated by public charter schools and continue to serve the attendance boundary.

Green Dot is widely considered the most experienced school turnaround operator in the country.

Because of this, The U.S. Department of Education has featured Green Dot as a national leader in school transformations and awarded us a replication and expansion grant for this work.

Our Teachers Make the Difference

"This is the best job in the world. It’s one of those professions where, if you’re doing a good job, you immediately know it. I can’t think of anything else that would be better for me to do than to work with these amazing kids and their families, helping them get to where they want to go."

"I get to work with first-generation college students with low-income backgrounds. I feel really lucky to do this work because I'm able to see the beginning, helping these students with their [college] applications, and I get to be part of the end, which is them getting accepted. There's nothing that compares to that feeling."

"I'm a Spanish teacher. I graduated from Animo [Inglewood] in 2012. I get to talk to my community about their history. There's been instances where students see me as part of their family. That's what makes the relationship inside our classroom so united--the fact that they see me as part of their community and see me as someone who they can become."

"Everybody is here for the kids. The opportunity to teach and help not only grow my students, but also help grow  [myself] personally. I come to work excited, and I leave excited. Being here is like home away from home."

"Here's an opportunity to come and make an immediate impact. We traditionally operate smaller schools, so an instructor who's in the room, their impact can be noticed immediately, not just from a culture aspect, but academically. Here, your voice matters. Here, your voice is valued. You can make an impact right away."

"We come together and work on one common goal. Our basic purpose is to prepare the students for college, leadership, and life. Working here is challenging, but it's also rewarding. Seeing the students come into your classroom with bright eyes and motivated, and they're ready to learn--it's a motivation for me.

"It's a great place to have a lot of freedom with your teaching and target your teaching and focus it based on what you're passionate about. Staff culture is really great. We all get along because we're all here for the same reason-the students. It's pretty evident across the board that that's what we're passionate about. "

"We have a high population of students of color. It's important, being a black man, that I'm here and being a positive role model for the students that come through my classroom doors-that come through the doors here at Destiny everyday."

"As teachers, we get constant support through professional development and weekly meetings."
