PLN's network of schools provide safe, nurturing, and welcoming environments for students and families to thrive.

Students receive high-quality education—project-based learning that fosters creative problem-solving and innovation while emphasizing literacy and language arts.

Families have access to the tools and resources to thrive — early intervention, mental health, and family support services.

Admission is free and open to any student that is a resident of California

Parents are encouraged to engage and learn too — leadership development to support students’ academic achievement and build personal strengths to succeed

Families have the option for after-school — early drop-off and late pick-up available for up to 11 hours a day knowing children are safe and learning under the high-quality care of PLN
