    Teach a Kid to Grow: Planting the Seeds of Health, Equity, and Community

    Our goal is to inspire lifelong healthy habits and a passion to preserve the planet in our students. Larchmont takes a whole child, diverse by design, constructivist, inquiry-based approach to education. We wish to grow our Edible Schoolyard (ESY) curriculum to increase mastery of important eco-literacy concepts, TK-12. We propose to align our ESY programs and curriculum and plant the seeds of awareness and activism to give all students the hands-on wonder and scientific understanding of nourishing a garden to grow and changing the world.

    REAL SCHOOL for LA Kids

    REAL (Relate, Engage, and Learn) SCHOOL for LA Kids will codify and amplify a consistent, Whole Child approach for teachers of all grade levels TK-12. By codifying the constructivist approach and building a teacher leadership training program, we can reach more students and help unite public charter schools and LAUSD. This plan builds on LA 2050’s vision of a brighter future, with every one of our youngest Angelenos seen, heard, nurtured, understood, and challenged to become a creative, analytical thinker and a socially responsible innovator.

    The Larchmont Model-Teacher Initiative

    The Larchmont Model Teacher Initiative codifies the social and emotional learning approach developed at Larchmont Charter School over its successful 14-year history. Larchmont's diverse-by-design, constructivist educational model can reach more kids by defining it first amongst Los Angeles educators and then rolling it out nation-wide. We will train teachers to provide diverse learning environments, dignity in the classroom, and equal access to college education for all students.
