Alliance College-Ready Public Schools was founded based on the belief that all young people, regardless of zip code, are capable of achieving at high levels. Alliance is now one of the largest and more successful public charter school networks in the nation, operating 25 high-performing middle and high schools serving 13,000 scholars in Los Angeles' more educationally underserved communities.

About Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools

The Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools will be guided and known by our core values and beliefs which reflect best practices researched in high performing schools that consistently produce well-educated students prepared to enter and succeed in college. Personalized Learning Environment - Students learn best in small learning communities where their education is personalized so that students know their teachers and are well known as individuals by all adults in the school. Student Engagement - Student voice is essential in all aspects of the school that directly affect student learning, interests and needs through structures such as advisory groups that connect each student with a personal learning team. College Readiness for All Students - All students, including students in historically underachieving communities, can learn successfully at high levels and have a fundamental right to high expectations and quality instruction that prepares them to enter and succeed in college. All students must pass A-G college entrance course requirements and be proficient in core academic standards (reading, writing, math, science, history/social science) to be ready for success in college. Increased Time for Learning - All students must have sufficient time in school to learn successfully with a minimum of up to 190 regular days of instruction and an ongoing opportunity for extended learning time for intervention or enrichment to meet individual student needs. Daily instructional learning time must be structured in longer blocks of time to allow for focused in-depth learning. English Learners - College-readiness requires proficiency in English for all students. Structured English language development curriculum and instructional strategies must be provided for all students including students learning to speak English as a second language and for English only students who speak non-standard English. How Students Learn Best - We believe that students learn best when there is rigorous standards-based curriculum with high thinking demand that challenges students to test their understanding of concepts through experiencing real life applications; when students know clearly the expectations and criteria they are trying to meet and can judge their own work; and when students participate actively in classroom talk about the concepts and standards they are learning. Integrated Technology - Students and teachers must have adequate access to technology to use it effectively in student learning, classroom instruction, data management and communication. We believe that technology used as an effective tool in high performing schools must provide electronic assessment and electronic student portfolios that provide immediate access to student progress data for teachers, students and their parents. Principal Leadership - Excellent schools must have exemplary principals who are capable instructional leaders and entrepreneurs in managing resources. We believe that exemplary principals are developed through in-depth leadership training and through apprenticeship with principals who have demonstrated success in their schools. Highly Qualified Teachers - Students learn best with teachers who know their subject field, are well trained to deliver rigorous instruction and can attend to the diverse needs of individual students. We believe that teachers work best in small collaborative teams with common planning time where lessons are studied as a learning community and where accountability for student success is a shared responsibility. Parents as Partners - Parents must be meaningfully and actively engaged in their children's education and have a right to choose to send their children to excellent high performing schools. Parents must be responsible and accountable for supporting their children's learning at school and at home. They must understand what it will take to prepare their children for college, and they must support the goals of the school and through their voice and through volunteering. Authentic Ongoing Assessment - There must be multiple ongoing opportunities to measure student learning and to inform instruction through real life projects, analysis of student work portfolios, interim assessments and student-led conferences as well as standardized on-demand assessments. Accountability for Results - Principals and teachers must be responsible and accountable to the school community for implementing the core values, beliefs and best practices of the Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools education model insuring that each and every student gets what they need to achieve their individual and school performance goals. Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools provide a choice of excellent schools with a high success rate for parents in Los Angeles whose children attend overcrowded, low-performing schools.
