By any measure, CLCS Schools, Inc., is a model of success and educational and financial efficiency in the public school arena.
Relying primarily on the same per-pupil state funding as other public schools, CLCS schools promote and implement a unique educational model that generates more educational "bang for the buck."
At the high school level, we consistently earn the top ranking in Alameda among "similar schools" that serve a comparable socio-economic mix of students.
We also have the most stringent graduation requirements among high schools in Alameda. All graduates must meet the comprehensive a-g guidelines required by the University of California system and the California State University system.
Our schools' innovative self-directed, project-based, and community-engaging approach to learning serves as a powerful example of how public schools can achieve extraordinary success with little more than standard public school funding.
