About Us

Excel Public Charter School boasts a highly qualified and diverse staff. The academic model is based around a college going culture with high expectations and high support, including acceleration and intervention. Technology and art electives will also be included for all students.

We are a public, tuition-free, college preparatory charter school serving a diverse population in Kent, WA.

Our teachers make the difference.

At Excel, we know that every child's path to success is unique, and it's up to us as educators to help your student find his or hers.  Our teachers don't want to just get students into college and careers--they want them to thrive at every stage of life. Maintaining a focus on growth in every classroom practice and achievement assessment helps propel students to long-term success and prosperity.


Our Mission:

Academic: To provide all students an academically rigorous, STEAM-focused, college preparatory educational program that will help them achieve both academic and personal success in college and career.

Civic: To empower all students to become agents of positive change in their communities through character development and culturally-responsive pedagogy.


About Green Dot Public Schools

Green Dot opened with one school serving 140 students in 2000 in Los Angeles. Today it is a network of schools that serves over 13,000 students across 28 schools in three states. In our sixteen year history, Green Dot has graduated more than 12,000 students with nearly 90% accepted to two- and four-year colleges.

Unique in the nation for a major non-profit charter management organization, Green Dot is proving it can achieve better student outcomes with the same student population, lower per pupil funding than the district and a unionized workforce. We are one of the top three largest charter operators in the nation.

Fulfilling the Promise of Public Education

Our public education system was always meant to be the great equalizer in this country — the way by which all our children could pursue the bright future they deserve. Green Dot aims to deliver on this promise.

We believe schools make the different for students, and we see our work as critical to preparing the next generation of leaders to take on the challenges of our future. It is Green Dot’s promise to help every student grow into the leaders and change-makers of tomorrow.
