Arleta is a K-8 neighborhood school home to 460 students and almost 50 staff members. We have two sections of Kinder, First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth grades. A unique part of Arleta is our mixed age philosophy and this is why grades 2 & 3 as well as 4 and 5 are grouped together.
We are fortunate to have really high quality middle school electives taught by amazing teachers. Here is the list currently being offered: Advanced Band, Beginning Band, Spanish 1-2 (for 8th graders), Health, Photography, Drama, Leadership, Library (research), Technology, PE, Design You, Art and Journalism.
The district recently announced that Arleta will become a K-5 school again during the 2021-2022 school year, which is four years from now. If this plan becomes a reality, then our current second-fourth graders would be the first group to move to the new middle school (we also do not yet know which middle school we will feed to).
What we do know is that right now, Arleta is alive with learning on a daily basis. Our teachers are deeply committed to their students as well as their practice.
