LA's BEST engages children at a crucial time in their lives.
Our model has been proven to drive the development of self-confident and motivated learners, curious thinkers, and active contributors to their classrooms, schools and communities.
Every school day, from the time the school bell rings until 6pm, each LA’s BEST student receives a nutritious meal, help with their homework and the opportunity to participate in a wide array of enrichment activities. In collaboration with students, staff develop these activities to reflect students’ voice and choice. Programming includes: science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), the arts, literacy, sports, nutrition and so much more. Social-emotional learning — helping students gain confidence, show empathy and develop positive relationships — are at the core of every activity.
