Vision & Mission

The mission of Alliance College-Ready Public Schools, a nonprofit charter management organization, is to open and operate a network of small high-performing 9-12 and 6-8 public schools in historically underachieving, low income communities in California that will annually demonstrate student academic achievement growth and graduate students ready for success in college. 

The mission of Smidt Tech is to operate a small high performance school equipped to prepare each student to enter and succeed in college. The primary strength of Smidt Tech is the highly accountable educational model guided by our five Alliance core values, which include:

1. High expectations for all students
2. Small personalized schools and classrooms
3. Increased instructional time
4. Highly qualified principals and teachers
5. Parents as partners

The Alliance educational model is based on what research has shown to be best educational practices and will serve as a research and development model for other public schools.

To achieve this mission, parents must remain actively involved in their child’s education and work in partnership with the school. At Smidt Tech, “Every student has the ability, and together, we give them the opportunity.”
