Our Vision: Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts is a place where students, teachers, parents, and the community collaborate to create a nurturing and inspiring learning environment where students can develop academic and life skills through creativity, inquiry, investigation, and reflection. Our arts integrated curriculum nurtures curiosity, confidence, collaboration, resilience, and civic engagement, enabling students to approach learning in different ways. Through project-based, constructivist learning, students are able to take risks and be actively engaged in their learning experience. In addition, LFCSA endeavors to become a model arts integration school and training facility that shares best practices and impacts our educational system and community.
"I have been a teacher at LFCSA for several years. From day one I was inspired by my colleagues' commitment to our students, by the parent involvement, and by the opportunity to create a learning environment that is engaging, creative, just and inclusive. My work is anchored by our school's powerful mission, vision and values. Our school is strong. And getting stronger!"
"We love LFCSAl! Both my kids are thriving and happy here. This school is very good at teaching kids to think for themselves and supporting them when they do. The classroom teachers (as well as the art, dance, music, and PE teachers) are really great. The subjects at LFCSA are not separated, but woven together in a very interesting way that allows the children find deeper understanding of what they are studying."
"I've had two children in LFCSA, and have been very happy with the experience. The teachers are smart, motivated, and intellectually curious, which is transferred to the kids in their classes. The mix of the arts with more traditional subjects keeps the kids engaged and excited to go to school every day. Sure, there are some organizational glitches, as with any charter, but nothing that seems outside the norm. And the community of parents here is great. I've been so grateful to have a charter option that gives my kids a chance to learn in such a fun, unique way."
"It was an obvious choice to send my son here. Better than a private school really. Great after school and organic lunch program, cool parents and architectural campus all make this place ideal. It's our 3rd year and we're lovin it. Come check it out for yourself. Don't overlook this school. "
"When people ask me what I do, I never simply say, "I'm a music teacher". Being a teacher at LFCSA means taking on a number of roles: student, teacher, friend, leader, collaborator, and neighbor."
"Teaching at LFCSA means taking risks, learning with my students, building community, cultivating curiosity, and viewing the world through a global lens. Within our community of inspiring artists, teachers, families, staff, and students, I'm compelled to create and inspire everyday."
