Our Mission

Our mission is to provide an excellent neighborhood based and college preparatory education for middle and high school students in City Heights.

Our Vision

Our vision is to see our graduates succeed in the college or university of their choice and be community leaders who work for positive change in City Heights and beyond.

We represent over 17 countries and 28 languages

Keeping with our mission of being a walkable neighborhood-based school, we serve a high proportion of students who have arrived to City Heights from various countries around the world. Our students come from Cambodia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Haiti, Iran, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Myanmar, Nepal, The Republic of Congo, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Uganda, The United States, and Vietnam.

Here, we prepare students for collegiate success
