Leadership Public Schools (LPS) is a network of outstanding public charter high schools in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our mission is to create educational equity. We empower students for college, career and community leadership, and share our practices on a national scale.
LPS has a shared vision for a 21st Century College and Career Ready Graduate. This vision calls us to move beyond the simple metric of grade point average and standardized test scores as prime measures of a young person’s readiness. Our Graduate Profile articulates the range of skills, knowledge, and mindsets that are necessary to prepare all students for college, career, and community leadership. It represents a commitment to all students and families, and is a reflection of our educational philosophy. It ensures rigorous outcomes for all students and values their unique learner profiles.
The Graduate Profile is centered on four essential domains – Think, Know, Act Go. For more information, visit our Academic Program page here.
