Principal's Message

Welcome to Valley Charter Elementary School (VCES); a high performing public charter school serving socio and economically diverse families throughout Los Angeles.

Valley Charter Elementary School is more than just a school. It is a welcoming, vibrant, diverse by design community committed to validating and affirming students’, staff and families’ unique cultural and life experiences. At Valley Charter School, students feel loved and love to learn! Children see themselves as readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, artists and thinkers. Students engage in hands-on, collaborative activities, which involve problem solving and critical thinking. We believe in a constructivist approach to learning that nurtures and challenges children while helping them to develop the skills necessary to be successful. Our goal is that VCES students will enter this global community with a sense of compassion and care, and posses the critical and creative thinking skills to be trailblazers and agents of change having a positive impact in their local, national and global community.

While we provide a rigorous academic program, we also stress the social and emotional development of each child. Our community celebrates and honors the whole child.

We encourage you to learn more about our mission/vision, philosophy of education and the design elements that serve as the foundational principles for the work that we do.

Whether you are a current member of our community, a prospective parent, engaged community member or a fellow colleague hoping to learn more, we hope you find this site to be helpful and easy to use. If you can’t find what you are looking for, please contact our office at (818) 810-6713.

It is both an honor and a joy to be a part of the Valley Charter School Community.

Warm Regards,

Jennifer Mansfield
Principal
