What makes Excel Public Charter School Unique

Excel is a public charter school currently serving grades 7 through 9 in Kent, Washington. Excel strives to develop regional leaders, equipped with the tools and knowledge necessary to be competitive not only for college success and graduation, but also for this region’s employment opportunities. We work toward our ultimate goal of college completion by providing all students with an academically rigorous, STEAM and literacy-focused program that is aligned with Common Core, College Readiness, and Next Generation Science Standards. During an extended school day, Excel employs a mix of instructional methods that teaches students to learn and think in different ways, as they will need to in college. Excel provides a 100-minute block of ELA instruction each day, and all students receive extended content instruction in math and science, with 500 minutes per week in grades six through twelve.

"Green Dot Public Schools is committed to valuing and empowering teachers who truly believe that education can change the lives of students. The organization was intentional about building a culture based on high expectations, equity and developing the whole child.
