Curriculum

Gifted as we are with one of the most culturally and geographically-diverse cities in the world, the City Kids curriculum seamlessly integrates into our L.A. community where we partner with organizations and experts in various fields to bring unique learning opportunities and experiences to our students, starting with weekly field trips in preschool and weekly field studies in elementary.

Although our schools are physically located in the mid-Wilshire district, the city of Los Angeles truly is our campus. What better way to develop inquisitive, compassionate and global citizens than by thoroughly exploring the city outside our front door?
