About Envision Schools:
Based on an award-winning model, Envision Schools develops small,
innovative, high-performing public high schools serving diverse
students. Envision, a nonprofit, has a deep commitment to students
who would be the first in their family to graduate from college.
Envision's First Generation College Bound (FGCB) students' college
graduation rate will quadruple that of comparable students.
Currently we operate three schools, two in San Francisco and one in
Novato. We will open another school in the East Bay in August 2006.
In three years we raised $7.5 million from the Bill and Melinda
Gates Foundation, Irvine Foundation, Stuart Foundation, San

and the California Department of Education. Other strategic partners
include the Low Income Investment Fund, Stanford University, and the
Small Schools Project. Envision is grateful for the pro bono support
of Cooley Godward LLP and Stone Communications. In 2005 our first
school had the fifth highest Academic Performance Index growth of
California's 550 charter schools. Envision strives to make our
Support Office and schools exciting places to work, teach, learn,
create and innovate by actively fostering an environment where all
staff are part of a professional learning community and a larger
student and parent community that honors: respect, trust, risk-
taking and openness to learning.
