Everest Value School invites you to join our family!

Everest is a brand new part of the Value Schools community, established to provide a high quality education for students who have been historically underserved by the traditional public school system. The following five Core Values inspire everything we do at our schools:

  1. Academic excellence is the means to a full life.
  2. Each student can develop to his or her fullest potential.
  3. Each individual is unique and deserves respect.
  4. A safe, nurturing community is essential to academic excellence.
  5. Service to others and the community is a responsibility of an educated person.

Over the past 11 years, Value Schools has shown that this focus leads not only to better citizens, but to increased academic achievement. Last year our sister school, Downtown Value, had an API of 838.  Our high school, Central City Value, will have 67% of its seniors attend a four year college next year. Here is how we do it!

  • Our small class sizes (around 20 students) lead to stronger, more positive relationships on campus.
  • Our flexible structure can respond to the particular needs of students and their families.
  • Our highly dedicated staff and strong parent involvement build a solid community.
  • Value Schools have a high degree of accountability for the performance of students, teachers, staff, and administrators.

How Do I Enroll?

Our campus is located at 668 South Catalina (close to Wilshire and Vermont) and includes a large auditorium and indoor gym. We are accepting students in grades K-8. Apply to Everest Value School or read some common Application FAQs.
