Larchmont Charter Heading to High School

Larchmont Charter School was approved yesterday by  LAUSD’s Board of Education to open and operate a high school beginning next year. Location and staffing of the high school will be worked out in the coming months, but it’s expected to open for approximately 125 Freshman in the fall of 2012, according to Myra Salinas, Assistant Principal.

Larchmont Charter was established in 2005 to serve the local community by providing elementary education to a racially, ethnically and socio-economically diverse group of students. Its elementary campus, on the former 3 acre Hollygrove site, is on El Centro Ave, just north of Melrose and Vine St. Larchmont Charter grew to add a middle school program  (grades 6-8) with a campus at the Immanuel Presbyterian Church on Catalina St at Wilshire Blvd. The LCS Middle School currently has an enrollment of approximately 200 students, and the first 8th grade class will matriculate this spring. The parent-founded, high-performing Larchmont Charter also opened a second “sister” elementary school, Larchmont Charter-West Hollywood, on Fairfax Blvd. in the fall of 2008.
