      ABOUT ENVISION SCHOOLS
      Based on an award-winning model, Envision Schools
      (www.envisionschools.org) 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
      one school in the East Bay in August 2006.

      In three years we raised $7.3 million from the Bill and Melinda
      Gates Foundation, Irvine Foundation, Stuart Foundation, San
      Francisco Foundation, New Technology Foundation, Koret Foundation,
      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.
