    “First new high school in Boyle Heights in 85 years”

    Mendez Learning Center is a wonderful example of the educational reform and key partnerships that are moving LAUSD into a new era of innovation and success for all our students,” said Board President Mónica García. “Mendez’s two small schools will deliver a focused and personalized academic experience in an environment where teachers and administrators have more opportunity to encourage and inspire their students – run with the support of a valuable partner directly invested in its success, the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools.”

    “With these new schools, we are doing things differently at LAUSD.”
