Expected School - Wide Learning Results(E.S.L.R.s)

AN ACADEMIC MIND can think well and appropriately in all disciplines to achieve academic standards.

A SYNTHESIZING MIND can sift through a large amount of information, decide what is important, and put it together in ways that make sense for oneself and for others.

A CREATIVE MIND can raise new questions, come up with novel solutions, and think outside the box.

A RESPECTFUL MIND honors the differences among individuals and groups, and tries to understand them and work productively with them.

AN ETHICAL MIND thinks, beyond selfish interests, about the kind of worker one aspires to be, and the kind of citizen that one should be.

A GLOBAL MIND applies classroom knowledge to neighborhood change in services to others.

 

In the late 1990's, families in the MacArthur Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, banded together under the stewardship of community-based organization Pueblo Nuevo Development (PND) to change the landscape of education in their community. Camino Nuevo Charter Academy (CNCA) was born out of this community's need and commitment to give its children a high quality education and break the cycle of underperformance. Camino Nuevo's grassroots antecedents and deep ties to its community have allowed the organization to grow and garner numerous community partnerships which provide invaluable services to students and their families.





CNCA serves over 1,500 students in preschool through 12th grade across four campuses: one Early Childhood Education Center, two K-8 campuses and one high school. The goals of CNCA have been to bring quality educational choices to parent and students, to improve the quality of life for its students through a solid educational foundation, and to strive for positive change in the ecology of the neighborhood through its impact on students, families and the community.





An outgrowth of CNCA, Camino Nuevo High School (CNHS) has set itself apart from local public and charter schools with its high academic performance, comprehensive offering of critical support services to students and families and high expectations in a culture where individuals matter and are prepared to be college ready, college bound. The school is driven by its mission to educate students in a college preparatory program to be literate, critical thinkers and independent problem solvers who are agents of social justice with sensitivity toward the world around them.
