Ararat Charter School is a public school that prides itself in developing and nurturing the whole child. The mission of the school is to educate students to their maximum potential in an environment that actively engages students in rigorous and relevant programs, promotes academic excellence and values cultural and linguistic diversity. What makes our school unique is that two languages other than English are taught; Armenian and Spanish.

Our school ranks as one of the best schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District. The Academic Performance Index (API) score is 878! Furthermore, our State wide ranking is an 8 with Similar School ranking 10. This is on par, or higher than most of the elementary schools in the Valley! We have high expectations for our students, our colleagues, our parents, and ourselves. We strongly believe that parent and community partnerships are an essential piece to the success of a school. Our students are encouraged and supported in “pushing their limits” in regard to their bodies, minds, and characters in order for us to set a strong foundation for “College and Career Readiness!”

We have amazing staff that is dedicated to the success of our students and committed to continuous learning. We conduct professional development and use school achievement data to discover the most effective ways to teach our students.  Our core values and beliefs are rooted in collaboration, innovation, and the empowerment of our students and parents. Ararat Charter School is truly a special place!

Sincerely,
Principal's  Message
