Welcome to CWC West Valley Elementary!

We are a free, public charter elementary school serving Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley. Launched in August 2020, we opened with grades TK, K and 1st and will continue to add a grade level each year until we are serving students in grades TK-8th. We are preparing our students to emerge as a new generation of leaders – as trailblazers who are ready to tackle the future challenges in our world and surpass the conceived limitations of what students, communities, parents, and schools can achieve in the world.


CWC West Valley is part of a network of charter schools across Los Angeles operated by Citizens of the World LA (CWC LA), a nonprofit organization governed by a local Board of Directors. The mission of CWC LA is to create an intimate network of high-achieving, community-based public schools for a diverse community of students, developing their abilities, confidence, and sense of responsibility for themselves and their community as true citizens of the world.



Applications are live for TK, K, 1st and 2nd grade!

On behalf of our entire team, I want to extend a heartfelt welcome to Citizens of the World West Valley. At CWC West Valley, our work is to help each child develop a true lifelong passion for learning. We embrace the diversity of a student’s skills and learning styles and our team works collaboratively to get to know each child and uncover the unique  gifts and growth opportunities he or she possesses. Through this discovery, our team can best challenge, support and encourage each child’s learning and growth and prepare students to live and participate in a democratic society.

We invite you to explore our site and learn more about our learning model and community.

Warm regard,
Principal Jennifer Mansfield
