Mission and Vision Statements

 

Alliance Marc and Eva Stern Math and Science School (Stern MASS) supports, empowers and educates traditionally underserved students, by providing a well-rounded, academically rigorous, STEM and college preparatory education, that is rooted in opportunities to become self-advocates and leaders in our community. Stern MASS is a unique public charter school collaboration between Alliance College-Ready Public Schools and California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA). Stern MASS serves the historically low performing, low income, primarily Latino student population of East Los Angeles. The charter for Stern MASS was approved by Los Angeles Unified School District in March 2006, and the school has been in operation since Fall 2006.

 

Mission:  Stern MASS supports, empowers and educates traditionally underserved students, by providing a well rounded, academically rigorous, STEM and college preparatory education, that is rooted in opportunities to become self advocates and leaders in our community.  

 

Vision:  Stern MASS builds the foundation for higher education and cultivates leaders in STEM and in our community.
