UCLA Community School (UCS)
About the Learning Program
UCLA Community School is an innovative K-12 learning environment that prepares all students for college, work, and civic participation. The instructional program is community-based, learner-centered, and university-assisted. Building on the strengths of the local neighborhood, the school is bilingual, bi-literate, and multi-cultural. Parents and community members are integral members of the school and their funds of knowledge help shape the instructional program. UCLA-CS personalizes learning for each student to ensure and document academic, social, and emotional growth over a student’s school career. Students have Personalized Learning Plans that build on their interests and needs, supporting them as active learners in a variety of experiences including projects, rigorous coursework, council, internships, peer tutoring, seminars, experiments, and so on.
