Our Success

"Education should create people that are capable of doing new things, not simply repeat the past. Schools should create people who are inventive and interested in discovery, critical thinkers who do not just accept what is offered." 

—Jean Piaget

 

Unique approach — CLCS schools' innovative self-directed, project-based, democratic and community-oriented approach to learning serves as a powerful example of how public schools can achieve extraordinary success with little more than standard public school funding. 

More bang for the buck — Relying primarily on the same per-pupil state funding as other public schools, CLCS schools promote and implement a unique educational model that generates greater educational effectiveness and efficiency.

Top scores and rankings — At the high school level, our schools consistently earn the top API scores in Alameda and high rankings among "similar schools" that serve a comparable socio-economic mix of students.

Stringent requirements — We also have the most stringent graduation requirements among high schools in Alameda.  Our graduates must meet the comprehensive A-G guidelines required by the University of California and California State University systems as well as do internships, senior projects and portfolios and complete at least one college course before receiving a diploma.

Educational success + financial stewardship — By any measure, CLCS Schools, Inc., is a model of educational success and financial stewardship in the public school arena.

 

 

 


As of Fall 2014, the CLCS offices and ACLC and Nea schools will be operating in our new long-term home at 1900 Third Street in Alameda.

We look forward to seeing you there!
