Alliance College-Ready Public Schools was founded in 2004 based on the belief that all young people––regardless of ZIP code, income, ability, or background–– are capable of achieving at high levels. Alliance is one of the largest and most successful public charter school networks in the nation, operating 26 high-performing middle and high schools serving nearly 13,000 scholars in Los Angeles communities that have been systematically oppressed. Over the course of nearly two decades, Alliance has a proven record of success: though 93% of incoming sixth graders come to Alliance reading below grade level, 95% of Alliance seniors graduate and are accepted to college. Now is the time to join our collaborative community to make long-lasting change across Los Angeles. Come teach at Alliance, where teachers achieve and scholars succeed.

  • Teachers are able to focus on the individual needs of scholars by utilizing ancillary resources, including English Learner and special education interventions, counselors, and instructional assistants.

  • Welcome and incorporate feedback from the coaching, guidance and feedback provided by school leaders, peer coaches and content support managers.

Uphold Alliance Values and Standards of Excellence
