LA’s Promise 2012

LA's Promise is radically improving the education, health and social outcomes for thousands of youth in one South Los Angeles community – LA’s Promise Neighborhood.

LA's Promise is radically improving the education, health and social outcomes for thousands of youth in one South Los Angeles community – LA’s Promise Neighborhood. Through a robust school turnaround model, LA’s Promise partners with a cadre of schools committed to ensuring that students growing up in poverty receive an excellent education.

LA’s Promise Neighborhood is an enrollment zone that includes two large South LA high schools (Manual Arts and West Adams Prep) and one middle school (John Muir) operated by LA’s Promise in a first-of-its-kind performance contract with the Los Angeles Unified School District. Within this zone, LA’s Promise transforms chronically failing public schools, opens new schools and remakes schools into community hubs that offer comprehensive support services for students and families. By doing this, LA’s Promise will prepare every child in LA’s Promise Neighborhood to be college and career-ready, healthy and successful in life.
