Welcome to Downtown Value School

Downtown Values School is happy to announce our partnership with After-School All-Stars, Los Angeles on the 21st Century application. If successful, this award will allow us to provide our students with a comprehensive after-school program at Downtown Value School. Our mission is to establish and support free, high quality, values-based charter schools for students historically underserved by traditional public schools.
Grounded in our values, our rigorous academic programs challenge our students to be a part of a rich K-12 learning environment. We have high expectations for our students and we do everything we can to ensure our students reach these expectations. Join us as we create exceptional schools, exceptional communities, and exceptional lives.

Where our students say...

  • I belong in this academic community;
  • My ability and competence grow with my effort;
  • I can succeed at this; and
  • This work has value for me.

Downtown Value School knows that giving back is the responsibility of every educated person. Downtown Value has been deemed a Kindness Certified School two years running, in recognition for its committment to creating a culture of kindness on campus.
