FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 31, 2023
Long Beach, CA – We The People Charter High School (WTP) proudly announces its commitment to shaping the next generation of empowered global citizens. With a strong mission and purpose, WTP is dedicated to equipping students with the knowledge, tools, and strategies to create positive and lasting change in the world.
Now in its fourth year, We The People Charter High School is expanding project-based civic engagement across Social Studies, Science, and Media Arts curricula. This includes the launch of an AP U.S. Government course that incorporates project-based civic engagement, as well as an AP Environmental Science course that is the capstone to its innovative science program. WTP students will also have the opportunity to earn the State Seal for Civic Education through a generous California Serves grant from the California Department of Education.
“We are excited to embark on this journey of growth and innovation with our students,” Principal Anita Ravi remarked. “Our commitment to providing a well-rounded education that nurtures critical thinking, creativity, and civic responsibility remains unwavering.”
Last year, WTP launched seven exciting electives: Animation, Financial Literacy, 3D Modeling and Design, Journalism, and the first-ever Academic Decathlon. Additionally, African Drumming and Dance, taught by Together In Rhythm, and Art classes, led by WTP’s volunteer art teacher, Danny Flores from Toberman Neighborhood Center, Inc., have been introduced to enrich students’ creativity and cultural understanding.
WTP students have proven their dedication to learning and growth, with their 2022-2023 Map Testing performances surpassing the national average. A testament to the exceptional teaching and learning environment at WTP, 100% of the students perform higher than the national average on the NWEA MAP Growth Index.
Located at 1635 Long Beach Blvd, Long Beach, CA. 90813, WTP Public Charter High School aims to prepare students to address the grand challenges of the 21st century, including climate change, inequality, poverty, and sustainable cities. Under the leadership of Principal Anita Ravi, the school emphasizes the importance of acting locally and globally while fostering collaborative skills among its diverse student body.
“Our Mission at We The People Charter High School is to inspire and empower our students to become changemakers in their communities and beyond,” stated Principal Anita Ravi. “We firmly believe that the youth of today have the potential to create a better world, and we are dedicated to providing them with the education and support they need to do just that.”
Despite opening its doors during the challenging times of the pandemic in June 2020, We The People Charter High School demonstrated resilience and innovation in adapting to the new normal. While facing obstacles related to attendance and low enrollment, the school persevered and expanded its program to offer even more opportunities for its students.
We The People Charter High School is currently open for enrollment, and the staff and faculty are thrilled to celebrate the first inaugural class of 2024 during the upcoming graduation ceremony.
