PVJOBS Hosts Mission View Public Charter
Recognizing the seriousness of Los Angeles’ high school dropout problem, PVJOBS has formed a partnership with Mission View Public charter schools, hosting a school site at its South Main Street location.
“Mission View is right in line with PVJOBS' programs,” said PVJOBS Executive Director Ernest Roberts. “We have worked with youth living in Central and East Los Angeles, coaching them through in the planning of their life goals - one of which is to earn their high school diploma.”
Mission View offers free, flexible independent study for 14-19 year old students so they can graduate. Their mission is to recover students who have dropped out, or who are in danger of dropping out. The school motivates, mentors, counsels and teaches them toward their diplomas.
The first Mission View school opened in 2001 and now there are 10 schools in Greater Los Angeles. The charter school is accredited by the Schools Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
