Westchester Secondary Charter School opened September 3, 2013 with grades 6-9 -- growing one grade each year to 6-12
Limited seats are still available for the current school year in grades 6, 7, and 9, with a waiting list for 8th. Get in on the ground floor and ensure your spot for the future!
There are two ways to apply to enroll for 2013-14:
Imagine a public school in Westchester. . .
• Serving grades 6-12, like LACES and many private and parochial schools
• Offering a rigorous, college-prep education in a humane environment
• Where a student’s experience is individualized as much as possible
• Where students experience everything a comprehensive school can offer, from the arts to athletics
• Where instructional, personnel, and budget decisions are made on site, and not downtown, based on the needs of the students
• Where great teachers aren’t fired because they lack “seniority”
school where we can “change our own light bulbs”—that is, we make the
decisions, large and small, that are in the best interests of our students.
A great idea? We agree. That's why we created Westchester Secondary Charter School, chartered by the Los Angeles County Board of Education.
