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 champion an education for all that embraces the power of possibility through holistic learning, authentic experiences, and the agency to effect social change.
Here is what our parents, students and staff have to say about what makes our school special.
