Once adrift among the sea of schools seeking refuge at one of the Los Angeles Unified School District’s campuses, Westchester Secondary Charter School ended its odyssey last month when it found a home at a Westchester church.
The charter’s co-founders, Ann Wexler and Janet Landon, have always wanted to be in Westchester as the students of the community are their target audience. They say they have received applications from students from the surrounding areas of Mar Vista, Playa del Rey and Del Rey but also from the student feeder pattern of Westchester schools, Ladera Heights and Windsor Hills.
The site of the new charter is at 8820 East Sepulveda Speedway near La Tijera Boulevard, the former location of WISH Charter.
They are planning to open their doors for the first time Sept. 3.
The school will serve middle school students as well as ninth graders and plans to eventually add 10th, 11th and 12th grades.
