Changes for 2022-23 School Year

4th & 5th grade returning to Naval Avenue!

Dear families,

We are excited to announce a change coming for the 2022-23 school year!

We are expanding Naval Avenue Early Learning Center (ELC) to a kindergarten through fifth grade (K-5) elementary school next year. This will allow our students to maintain the strong relationships and sense of belonging they have developed in their kindergarten through third grade (K-3) experience at Naval Avenue, and keep them in their community school through fifth grade.

  • This year’s 3rd graders at Naval Ave ELC will continue at Naval Avenue for 4th grade for the 2022-23 school year rather than transferring to West Hills STEM Academy.

  • Current 4th graders at West Hills who live in Naval Avenue’s s attendance area will return to Naval Ave for 5th grade for the 2022-23 school year.

We are making this change due to increased enrollment and capacity issues at West Hills STEM Academy. It is also an effort to lessen the number of transitions between schools for our students.

We are updating the school name to reflect this change as well! Beginning in the fall, Naval Avenue Early Learning Center will become Naval Avenue Elementary School.

Early learning remains a district-wide priority. Throughout our district, we have numerous early learning programs through our targeted classrooms and community partners. Additionally, we are continuing our focus on building students’ foundational literacy skills through effective instructional strategies.
