Students Thrive Here

In 2008, Green Dot joined with teachers, parents and the community to transform Locke, one of the most persistently low-achieving schools in California, and turned it into a safe, personalized learning academy. Locke serves a highly impacted and transient community, many of whom are without a permanent or any residence, and 33% of whom are English Language Learners. Almost 20% are students with disabilities.


In 2019, Locke was awarded the Charter of the Year Award. In addition to rigorous college-prep curriculum, Locke students have the opportunity to play on athletic teams, or in their revived world-class marching band. Students also have access to innovative science and technology programming. Locke helps students cultivate skills and qualities that prepare them for success in college, leadership, and life.
