Welcome Back to School………2011 / 2012
"We will SOAR like eagles!"
Welcome back parents, students, teachers, faculty and friends of WAYS. I want to thank all of you for your commitment to our wonderful school and for your efforts in making our school a great place for students to learn. It is because of our outstanding partnership, that WAYS has a second chance to relive our school's mission to empower students to be leaders, change agents, self-responsible learners and true scientists. In a day of declining enrollment, we are pleased to announce tremendous growth. In addition to the K school and Manchester sites, this school year we opened a second K-5 site located at S. Central. We expect our school population to exceed 500 students this year!

The 4,000 square foot median sits one block south of busy Manchester Blvd. at 87th and McKinley Avenue in South L.A.'s Green Meadows community. The project is the dream of officials at Wisdom Academy for Young Scientists, a K-5 LAUSD Charter school around the corner...
