PRIME reimagines the student experience through community focused, experiential education:
We consider “school” a series of interconnected learning experiences rather than a single brick-and-mortar site, and thus consider South Los Angeles an extension of our classrooms.
While these signature experiences have a local focus, they will also include Greater Los Angeles, as well as global and digital communities. PRIME’s community approach provides opportunities for students to work alongside local partners to create solutions to local issues, and students are assessed on the thoughtfulness and impact of their solutions.
Examples will include creating inexpensive solar cell phone chargers, working to bring fresh produce to the neighborhood, or creating safe after-school spaces for students.
