Message from the Principal

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. This year, we are excited to welcome grades 7 and 8 as well our founding high school class of 9th grade students. Green Dot’s mission is to prepare every student for college, leadership and life. Green Dot has a proven track record of aiding historically under-served students, including students from low-income backgrounds and students of color. We are committed to the following:

  • 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 info.excel@greendot.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.
