Mission, Vision & ESLRs


Our mission is to empower all students with the college and career ready skills necessary to become productive citizens of a global society.


We will be recognized nationally as a model of collaboration among teachers, parents, administrators, and the community dedicated to maximizing the educational, social emotional development and civic engagement of its students. To this end, we will:

  •  Reinforce collaboration through vertical articulation and transition planning that ensures seamless pathways of success across the Crenshaw High School family of feeder elementary and middle schools.
  •  Foster a culture of family and community engagement through our Parent Center, community outreach, and partnerships that promote student well-being, supports high academic achievement, provide additional resources, and extended learning opportunities.
