PCSD acquired this 1-acre site and converted it into a 400-student seat high school campus. The site is located in the Green Meadows neighborhood of South Los Angeles and adjacent to Watts. Surrounded by low-density commercial and residential properties, this site was a former sewing assembly facility that has been vacant for several years.
This project is home to College-Ready High School Academy #4, a campus owned and operated by The Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools. The Alliance is a premier charter management organization with exceptional academic performance scores.
This one-story building totals 21,755 square feet and its on-site parking lot totals 6,000 square feet. Additionally, the campus has 14 classrooms, a library, a computer lab, dedicated specialty classrooms for science instruction, administration offices, and a parent center. The school also has meeting and instructional space, storage, on-site parking, and landscaping.
These new seats directly serve the needs of students enrolled at Locke High School, one of the most overcrowded high schools in Los Angeles. The site relieves overcrowding by increasing seat capacity, providing quality public education options for students, and raising educational achievement levels.
The total project cost was $4.88 million, including all furniture, fixtures and equipment.
