Dear ECP Families,
As we enter the 2018-19 school year, I am very excited to announce that I will be joining the team as ECP’s Principal. I have been privileged to be a part of the ECP family since 2010 and am honored to be joining in this greater role.
When I started at ECP as a 5th grade science and reading teacher, I fell in love with the unique place that was Endeavor. I was attracted to the joyful rigor in the academics, the focused teaching of self-discipline, the passion shared to build lifelong readers, and the generosity and commitment of our families.
As I continued to grow as a middle school teacher with our oldest ECPistas, I got the chance to see how ECP’s collaboration with families, focus on our PRIDE values and continuously raising the bar for academics unlocked doors for our scholars as they got into high quality high schools and colleges. As I stepped into leadership roles at Endeavor, I was able to see the passion that our teachers bring to continuing to improve the work that we do every day with students to make them the most prepared for their future. Nothing brings me more pride than seeing ECP alumni return with younger siblings to tell me the amazing things they are up to.
I’ve seen our mission fulfilled with so many of our ECPistas and am committed to making this a reality for all of our families. It will take hard work, trust, and sacrifice from everyone—parents, families, ECP staff, and students. I trust that by choosing Endeavor for your child you are ready to do what it takes to fulfill our mission and prepare all students with the academic skills, character traits, and intellectual discipline to be leaders in our world. I know I am!
I look forward to a wonderful 2018-19 school year filled with collaboration, joy, and growth!

On Saturday, March 15, 2014, Stanford University’s Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) released a new report finding that the typical student in a Los Angeles charter school gains more learning in a year than his or her district school peer, amounting to about 50 more days of learning in reading and an additional 79 days of learning in math.
We are delighted that CREDO’s research confirms our own findings – Los Angeles charter schools are performing incredibly well, especially with historically underserved students, and are improving over time. We are particularly encouraged to see that the Los Angeles charter school sector is recognized to be one of the strongest, if not the strongest charter school sector anywhere in the nation.
Charter schools in Los Angeles are generating learning equivalent to an extra 4 months in math and 2.5 months in English language arts. For low income students, the story is even better with Latino students in poverty experiencing an additional 6 months of learning in math and an extra 3 months in English Language arts for every year enrolled in a charter school. This explains a great deal about why parent demand for charter schools has led to enrollment tripling over the past six years.
Furthermore, the report finds that the performance of charter management organizations (CMOs) are helping students learn at rates far faster than within traditional public schools (an additional 3 months of learning in reading and an astounding 6 months in math). This finding increases our confidence that the charter school sector will continue to strengthen as it grows.
CREDO at Stanford University is the nation’s foremost independent analyst of charter school effectiveness. This report provides the first in-depth examination of the results for charter schools in Los Angeles by CREDO.
