Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. It is with great pleasure I welcome you to Loyola Village Performing and Fine Arts Magnet School! I am excited and honored to be the Principal of this AWESOME school. I am beginning my 20th year as an educator in Los Angeles Unified School District and am looking forward to serving each and every one of you as we continue to soar both academically and artistically.
Every year is a fresh year to grow and develop and prepare our children for college. We are so excited that the steps we have taken over the last three years that I have served as principal have shown to be successful as evidenced in our 24 point growth in English Language Arts and our 19 point growth in Math over the last two years we have participated in the State Tests. We are aggressively strategizing and finding ways to support your children both academically and socially.
As a Progressively Artistic school, we offer many arts enrichment programs, providing Artistic instruction in Theater, Vocal, Instrumental, Dance (modern, jazz and African dance), and Visual Arts. We hope you will attend and/or support our performances and showcases throughout the year. (See our calendar section). The programs are free but donations will be accepted through our PTO. (The donations support all of our Arts programs)
If you’re looking to partner with us or would like to find ways to support our school and it’s programs (academically or artistically) please give us a call at (310) 670-0480, or you can email me at Krishna.Smith@lausd.net
We appreciate all you would like to do to support our students.
As I conclude this message, I look forward to partnering with each of you. Thank you for entrusting us to be a part of your child’s academic and artistic experience.
Sincerely,Dr. Krishna Smith, Principal
