Our commitment to your child’s success remains the same year after year. We look forward to providing all of our students with an experience that provides them with the tools necessary for their growth and development.

At La Tijera our staff’s commitment to your child’s academic and social growth remains the same and is exemplified in our mission statement, which states:

The faculty and staff of La Tijera K-8 Academy of Excellence Charter School is committed to preparing each student for growth so that they may excel academically and socially by providing them with a rigorous standards based curriculum through research based instruction in a safe and welcoming environment. 

As your child’s Principal, I look forward to working together with your family and our staff to ensure that your child has the best academic and social experience possible. 

Please feel free to contact me either by email or phone if you have any questions regarding our programs or your child’s progress. 

Thank you,

IUSD Parents Complete the Alternate Income Form Now!

Dear Parents and School Communities,

Thank you for helping to get the 2022-2023 school year off to a great start! We truly appreciate your support of your students and our schools.


Under the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), a portion of state funding will be determined based on the demographics of student population, with higher funding on a per student basis for districts like Inglewood that have large concentrations of low-income, English Language Learner and foster student populations. Therefore, we are required to establish and confirm the number of students that represent these categories by having families complete the official LCFF form.


Our goal is to ensure that Inglewood’s students receive the maximum amount of funds that we are eligible to receive by encouraging our schools to complete the LCFF form. To receive the maximum amount, we must have 100% of eligible students/families complete the form.

By completing the form and turning it in as soon as possible, you will help our schools reach the above stated goal and greatly contribute to enabling us to better serve our students.
