Our Mission, Vision and History

Mission, Vision, History


The mission of La Cima Elementary Charter School is to prepare our students for academic and life-long success through a rigorous and relevant academic program.


Our vision is to develop students who have intellectual capacity, social capital and emotional strength of character to be personally successful and to act as effective change-makers in their communities.


Our philosophy is grounded in the behavioral psychology of Dr. Carol Dweck, the theories of Paolo Freire, and Lisa Delpit which speak to education for social and political change.  We believe that through creating an excellent school organization, we can create innovative opportunities that support and develop wider community change. The school becomes a location for social and political change to take root, through our scholars, our team, families, and our work together.
