Our Mission The Value Schools mission is to establish and support high quality, values based elementary and secondary charter schools for populations of students who have been historically underserved by the public school system. What makes Value Schools unique among charter schools? Grounded in our values, our rigorous academic programs challenge our students to be a part of a rich learning environment. The importance of the five core values cannot be overstated. Our Five Core Values: 1.Academic excellence is the means to a full life. 2. Each student can develop to his or her fullest potential. 3. Each individual is unique and deserves respect. 4. A safe, nurturing community is essential to academic excellence. 5. Service to others and the community is a responsibility of an educated person.
We are looking for educators who are passionate about urban education and serving students throughout the Los Angeles area. We want to ensure all educators are highly trained, skilled and qualified to serve students who are traditionally underserved. We seek educators who are values-aligned and mission driven to support diverse learners. We want to ensure all educators are collaborative, open to feedback, reflective and open to growing within their own profession.
