Recognizing the need for strong middle school educational opportunities in South Los Angeles, LA Promise Fund, a nonprofit education organization, has opened LA Promise Charter Middle School #1 (LAPCMS#1). Growing from 75 sixth grade students in the 2016-17 school year, it will serve 435 students in grades 6-8 by the fall of 2018.
LA Promise Charter Middle School #1 (LAPCMS#1) offers a small and innovative learning environment that engages students by way of personalized instruction, robust wraparound services, and a variety of enrichment opportunities. LAPCMS#1 provides essential hands-on digital learning tools, which simultaneously build core standards mastery and fundamental computer skills (e.g. typing, online research). The aim of this blended learning education strategy is to provide the necessary technological foundation to prepare students for the 21st Century workplace.
Students who graduate from LAPCMS#1 have the opportunity to continue in a small, project-based learning environment at LA Promise Charter High School #1. LAPCMS#1 builds upon LA Promise Fund’s record of progress in the South LA community.
