Westchester Secondary Charter School
- School/Middle & High
Welcome to Westchester Secondary Charter School! We are an independent charter school started by local educators and community members, and are authorized by Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) and accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). We are building strong relationships with parents, local businesses, and community groups, all of whom recognize the need for a community-based secondary school for Westchester and its surrounding communities.
We opened September 3, 2013, with grades 6-9, adding one grade per year till we are grades 6-12 (middle and high school) by 2016. This year, 2014-15, we serve grades 6-10, a little over 300 students.
WSCS is a college prep, comprehensive secondary school that is designed to meet students where they are, making sure that each child has his or her academic needs met in a warm, humane environment. Our classes average 25; we anticipate reaching 525 total students by 2016.
''Comprehensive'' means that we cover all subjects, including arts, humanities, foreign languages, mathematics, science, and athletics. We do not ask our students to specialize, but rather make sure that they have a firm foundation in all subjects, allowing them greater options for college and the working world.
