It is with much enthusiasm that we welcome you to Kenter Canyon website to learn or seek information about our school. Our focus as a school community is to improve student achievement and character building for all learners. We must ensure a positive learning environment that teaches children how to be safe, respectful, and responsible citizens, as well as thinkers, discoverers, and inquirers. The results of standardized test scores ranks Kenter as one of the highest performing schools within Los Angeles Unified School, and is recognized by the California Department of Education for its excellence and academic achievements.

School Charter

E-mail Print PDF

How Is A Charter School Different From Other Public Schools?

As a Charter School, we are given more independence in the areas of curriculum, staffing and governance.  We have designed a curriculum that is meaningful, process oriented and uniquely child-centered. A hands on experimental approach focusing on critical thinking skills is at the core of each of our classes.
