Small classes, inspiring teachers, field trips, and hands-on learning projects make the Environmental Charter Schools experience safe, dynamic and fun – but don’t just take our word for it.

Environmental Charter Schools are public, free, and open to all. We have a 96% college acceptance rate. We are committed to providing the appropriate support for your child so they can reach their full potential. We partner with families so you are part of your child’s education. Together, we are reimagining public education for youth in Los Angeles.
