Welcome to Excel Public Charter School in Kent, WA!
We are a free, charter public school that is open to all students and dedicated to serving our local community in the Kent area.

- A public middle school and high school that’s free and open to all students
- Personalized learning for all students
- A teacher mentor for every child
- A college-going culture
- Technology to enhance learning
- Family partnerships and programming
- Free after-school enrichment program
This will be my second year at Excel and I am so excited to take things to the next level during the 2017-18 school year! I was raised just outside of Detroit, Michigan and I was the first person to graduate from college in my family. I began my career in public education as a high school math teacher in Round Rock, Texas where I taught Algebra I, Algebra II, and Math Models. I transitioned to school leadership so that I could coach and grow teachers in the areas of instruction and culture resulting in a greater impact on more students.
We still have spaces available for each grade. Please contact us at (253) 487-7530 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about Green Dot's mission to ensure that all of our students graduate prepared for high school, college, leadership and life.
