Leadership Academy West

Mission Statement

We believe that all students can successfully learn in a nurturing environment if given the proper tools, thus becoming productive members of society.

It is the mission of Leadership Academy West Charter High School to provide opportunities for enrolled students to acquire an education focused on rigorous academics, technology, and technical skills to produce graduates who are prepared for success in a global community. Through a science-based, experiential learning curriculum, students will gain knowledge and skills to prepare them for college and the workforce upon graduation. Along with a high level of achievement in core academic areas, students will create ownership of challenging goals in their individual areas of interest. Immersion in the community and local businesses, along with quarterly learning expeditions (community-based study periods), will encourage students to take advantage of local resources.

It is the vision of Leadership Academy West to utilize differential learning methods in order to meet/exceed Sunshine State Standards and the Federal NCLB.

Description

On April 21, 2005, the charter for Leadership Academy West. was signed by The School District of Palm Beach County, and we began the journey as a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to providing rigorous, alternative high school education. In June 2008, our charter was renewed for 5 more years of academic excellence.

We educate students grades 9-12, and in 2008 will cap our enrollment at not more than 150 students. Our class sizes are always less than 25 students, and frequently much smaller. Our teachers are not only certified by the Department of Education, but are continually learning and growing through in-service seminars, conferences and continuing education.
