Sycamore Community School
For these passionate educators, the past year provided an opportunity to reimagine education and open the doors of Sycamore Community School! This TK-8 independent school offers an innovative mission and whole-child approach to learning. It is no coincidence that the school’s namesake, Sycamore, is a tree that flourishes in Los Angeles, symbolizing the determination for students to become resilient and positive contributors to our community. The school culture focuses on independence, creativity, compassion, and kindness in conjunction with robust research-based academics. Additionally, the small class sizes facilitate differentiation allowing teachers to best support students while executing powerful hands-on educational experiences with fidelity. A low student-to-teacher ratio and ample outdoor spaces cater to outdoor learning and consistent in-person instruction, along with a vaccinated faculty.
