Cheremoya Elementary

School Vision

We envision a school community where all stakeholders collaborate to help students achieve their personal best through the following pathways:

  • Students will have a clear sense of self and respect for diversity
  • Students will understand their responsibilities to others in a global society
  • Students will understand learning objectives and set goals to achieve their personal best
  • Students will learn strategies to access knowledge and skills to achieve these goals

Our students will gain the cognitive and interpersonal skills to become critical, creative thinkers prepared to compete in the 21st century.

Staff and Students: 

Cheremoya Elementary is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District, serving students in TK through 5th grade. We currently enroll just over 160 students not including our Preschool Collaborative class and the State Pre-School program that are also part of our campus. 

Our school has 13 fully credentialed certificated teaching staff, which includes 9 general education teachers, 2 pre-school teachers, and 2 coordinators.  The staff's average number of years of experience is 19 years. The 2015 school year marked our 100th year anniversary. Cheremoya was recognized in 2014 and 2020 as being a California Distinguished School and has an Honor Roll School distinction since 2015. 

Community Schools Initiative

We are proud to announce that beginning in the 2024-2025 school year we will have the added identification as a Community School. The California Community Schools Partnership Program (CCSPP) supports schools’ efforts to partner with community agencies and local government to align community resources to improve student outcomes. These partnerships provide an integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and community engagement.

Creative Network

We are a creative network site where students experience all four disciplines in the arts: theater, dance, visual arts and vocal music.

Student Gallery

Cheremoya is part of LAUSD's Creative Network. All students TK-5 receive arts integration/instruction in four disciplines, (theatre, dance, visual arts, and music) during either nine or twelve-week rotations.

This collaboration with the LAUSD Arts Branch supports our designation as an Arts Pathway School in Region West. 

Please be certain to visit our rotation of student art in our gallery showcase located in our main hallway.

The Outdoor Learning Center and Green Space

A labor of love and joint effort of the Cheremoya Foundation, community volunteers, and LAUSD. The OLC is an incredible outdoor learning and play space that has to be seen. Dedicated in 2016, the area includes a dry creek bed and amazing native plants in addition to much needed green space for students to enjoy.

Cheremoya is also home of an EnrichLA edible garden. Student enrichment classes are delivered by a garden ranger thanks to the support of the Cheremoya Foundation.
