Who We Are
Disrupting The Status Quo
Founded in 2015 through the merger of highly successful schools, STEM Preparatory Schools operates public charter schools in the West Adams and Jefferson Park neighborhoods of South Los Angeles. We are committed to disrupting the status quo of inequitable access to high quality STEM pathways for women and minorities by cultivating a family of students and staff who solve problems through collaboration, innovation, passion, and perseverance.
Our Students' Success
Mission & Vision
The mission of STEM Prep Schools is:
…to operate a small network of high performing schools, in a targeted area of Los Angeles
…and develop TK – 12th grade scholars into successful college graduates and professionals,
…through equal access and inspiration, rigorous curriculum, and a commitment to our core Values.
The vision of STEM Prep Schools is to create a kindergarten through college pipeline of individuals who will transform their community by closing the socio-economic, ethnic, and gender gaps in STEM fields, and serving as role models who exhibit scholarliness, advocacy, perseverance, and kindness.
At STEM Prep Schools we believe it’s not just about getting a degree but rather does that degree open a pathway for what comes next for these graduates.
