      CEIBA PUBLIC SCHOOLS OVERVIEW
      Ceiba Public Schools is a nonprofit charter management organization committed to
      closing the college-readiness gap for historically underserved students. We seek
      to build exceptional and sustainable public charter schools that close the
      college completion gap on California's central coast. We believe schools should
      be more engaging, relevant, inspiring and rewarding than they are today.

      Our first school, Ceiba College Prep Middle, is in its fifth year of operation
      and currently
      serves 265 students in grades 6-8. Ceiba has an Academic Performance Index (API)
      of 845, a 97% parent satisfaction rate, and is ranked #1 of the 100 most
      demographically similar schools in California. Ceiba Middle School feeds into
      Ceiba High School, which currently serves 120 students in grades 9-10 as it
      ladders into a 9-12 program. Both schools are located in downtown Watsonville, a
      small city in southern Santa Cruz County.

      At Ceiba, every student is prepared for college success through the cultivation
      of creativity, effort, integrity, benevolence, and assertiveness (C-E-I-B-A).

      achievement, a small school feel offering personalized attention, an extended

      high levels of academic support in order to achieve exceptional results.

              DEAN OF STUDENTS
              CEIBA COLLEGE PREP HIGH SCHOOL

              CEIBA PUBLIC SCHOOLS OVERVIEW
              Ceiba Public Schools is a nonprofit charter management organization committed to
              closing the college-readiness gap for historically underserved students. We seek
              to build exceptional and sustainable public charter schools that close the
              college completion gap on California's central coast. We believe schools should
              be more engaging, relevant, inspiring and rewarding than they are today.

              Our first school, Ceiba College Prep Middle, is in its fifth year of operation
              and currently serves 265 students in grades 6-8. Ceiba has an Academic
              Performance Index (API) of 845, a 97% parent satisfaction rate, and is ranked #1
              of the 100 most demographically similar schools in California. Ceiba Middle
              School feeds into Ceiba High School, which currently serves 120 students in
              grades 9-10 as it ladders into a 9-12 program. Both schools are located in
              downtown Watsonville, a small city in southern Santa Cruz County.

              At Ceiba, every student is prepared for college success through the cultivation
              of creativity, effort, integrity, benevolence, and assertiveness (C-E-I-B-A).
              Our program is based on explicit and ambitious expectations for student
              achievement, a small school feel offering personalized attention, an extended
              school day and school year, a challenging academic course load, and a positive,
              structured school environment. Ceiba also features after-school activities and
              high levels of academic support in order to achieve exceptional results.
