WELCOME TO ROBERT F. KENNEDY COMMUNITY SCHOOLS
Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools welcomes you to our Website!
RFK Community Schools is comprised of six autonomous Pilot Schools located at the site of the former Ambassador Hotel. The school was built to relieve underperforming and overcrowded schools located in the historically underserved neighborhoods of Pico-Union and Koreatown. Students will be offered a rigorous and personalized instructional program that will embody the social justice legacy of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, who was assassinated at the Ambassador Hotel in 1968.
RFK Community Schools is a 24-acre, Kinder through 12th grade campus. The schools will serve 4000 students during the 2011-12 school year. Some of the unique features of the campus include the world famous Cocoanut Grove Theater, Paul Schrade Library, state-of-the-art Gymnasium, and several public art installations including two Murals by Judith Baca.
Schools include the Ambassador School of Global Education, Ambassador School of Global Leadership, NOW Academy, UCLA-CS, School for the Visual Arts and Humanities and Los Angeles High School of the Arts.
What is a Pilot School?
A Pilot School is an autonomous small school. Pilot Schools were established in 2007 as role models of educational innovation and as research and development sites for effective teaching and learning in urban public schools.
While Pilot Schools are part of Los Angeles Unified School District, they have autonomy over their instructional program, schedule, staffing, calendar and budget This increased flexibility enables the schools to further meet the needs of students and parents.
Pilot schools are committed to the idea that student engagement and achievement increases when schools are small, personalized, mission-driven, and have autonomy over their resources in exchange for increased accountability. Pilot schools are committed to providing equity, access and excellence for every student.
RFK Closed Campus Policy
To ensure the safety of all students and staff, RFK has implemented a Closed Campus Policy.
Por la seguridad de los estudiantes y personal, la escuela RFK comenzara la poliza de Campo Escolar Cerrado.
