Schoolsupplies

With the myriad of public, private, charter, magnet and parochial schools to choose from
in the community, picking the right school to fit your family’s needs can often be a challenging task.

The Education Committee, a program of the LAX Coastal Chamber, is hoping to provide some insight and answers into the local education system with its inaugural Neighborhood School Expo. The Education Committee meets monthly  and is comprised of school principals, administrators and education advocates. The group meets to discuss best practices, share resources and hear from a variety of speakers on education topics.

At the expo, attendees will have the opportunity to connect with local schools with 20-minute breakout discussion sessions where they can learn the difference between types of schools; speak one-on-one with education administrators and meet and greet with community resources. Confirmed schools as of press time include: Goethe International Charter School, Animo Westside Charter Middle School, Loyola Village Fine Arts & Performing Magnet, Otis College, Paseo del Rey Elementary, St. Jerome School, St. Bernard High School, Visitation, Westchester Lutheran, Westchester Secondary Charter, Westport Heights, Westside Neighborhood School, WISH Charter and Wright STEAM Magnet.

The Neighborhood School Expo will be held on Wednesday, February 11 from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at Covenant Presbyterian Church, located at 6323 W. 80th Street in Westchester. Parents are encouraged to bring their kids to the expo and face painting, food and activities will be provided.
