PCSD has built six permanent campuses for the Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools. The first is a 500-seat high school campus in the City of Huntington Park, the second, an 875-student middle and high school campus in the Pico-Union community of Los Angeles, the third, a 400-seat high school campus near the Watts community of South Los Angeles, the fourth and fifth, a 585 seat high school to be expanded by the addition of a 360 seat middle school campus in the Hyde Park community of South Los Angeles, and a 550-seat high school in South Los Angeles. Currently, PCSD is developing an additional new high school in South Los Angeles, the Alliance Health Services Academy High School.
"In 2004, the first Alliance campus opened at the corner of Western and Martin Luther King Blvd., starting with a small group of dedicated educators serving a few hundred families who wanted something better for their children. From day one, Alliance has been about making that difference. Today, Alliance is the largest charter management organization in Los Angeles, educating nearly 12,000 students in 27 high-performing schools, more than 6,000 graduates, and continue to make a difference in the lives of every one of our students.
During the past 12 years, the Alliance network has become a shining beacon of educational excellence, providing opportunities and access for students in caring and supportive learning environments focused on high expectations. Time and time again, Alliance proves that an exceptional education can in fact be the rule for low-income youth by employing the highest achievement standards and latest innovations in technology to prepare our students for success in college and future careers."
