Effectiveness & Efficiency
"Innovators are often seen as impractical. Truth is, they are the most practical because their innovations lead to progress and better results."
— Robin S. Sharma
Among California public schools (charter and non-charter), CLCS Schools are defined both by their high rate of educational success and their notable financial efficiency.
Expanded offerings — Despite the ever-shrinking funding of California's public schools, ACLC and Nea have defied the odds with ever-expanding course and elective offerings. These encompass innovative STEM programs (Science • Technology • Engineering • Math), thriving Arts curriculums, comprehensive Humanities offerings (including honors tracks), digital video and musical composition programs and more.
College classes — Our reciprocal relationship with the Peralta College District offers our high school learners a comprehensive array of college classes in the subjects of their choice through the College of Alameda, Berkeley City College, Laney College and Merritt College.
Maximized impact — Through innovative educational programming, effective hiring, strategic fundraising and grantwriting, and sound financial management, CLCS Inc. has helped our schools maximize program impact despite inconsistent standard public school funding.
Financial prudence — We have also wisely built significant financial reserves which allow us to sustain our vibrant educational programs and be less susceptible to cuts in California state funding that have inflicted severe damage on many public schools.
