      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.

      graduation rate will quadruple that of comparable students. Currently
      we operate four schools, two in San Francisco, one in Novato and one

      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

      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.

      At Envision, we strive to make our schools an exciting place to work,
      teach, learn, create and innovate by actively fostering an environment
      where all staff are part of a professional learning community and a

      trust, risk-taking and openness to learning.
