New High School Campus to Open on Nov. 8th, Grand Opening Celebration Dec. 9th

Science Family, we are thrilled to announce that we will be moving into the new building located at 201 N. Douglas St. in just a few short weeks! There will be more details in the coming weeks for drop-off, pick up, etc.

A message with details from our CEO, Dr. Matt Wunder, can be found at the Da Vinci Schools website, or you can access it directly by clicking HERE. It is available in both English and Spanish.

What do I need to know?

To ensure a smooth transition, the Da Vinci Schools Board of Trustees has approved a modification to the academic calendar to create a 5-day window for packing, moving, and reconfiguring technology. Details below:

  •  We will be adding two professional development days (Nov. 6 and 7) to our schedule. Nov. 3 was previously scheduled as a PD Day (no school for students).
  • The last day of classes at the current campuses for DVC, DVD and DVS will be Nov. 2.
  • Students will begin at the new campus on Wednesday, November 8th.

We ask that all students, families and community members please remain off of all campuses (old or new) during the transition unless specifically authorized to be there.

To celebrate our new beginning in this amazing new facility, there will be a Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 10:00AM to 1:00PM. Students, families and community members are invited to attend the opening celebration of Phase 1 of construction. (Phase 2: pool, gym and soccer field is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2018.)

Please reach out with any questions or concerns. We are so excited to get into our new home!

Thank you!


Police Activity near Campus – Update for Families

Dear parents & families, an incident involving police activity occurred on Aviation Blvd. between El Segundo Blvd. and Rosecrans Blvd. near the 360 housing development around 10:00 am this morning. Upon hearing this, we immediately went into a soft lock down and contacted the police.  They shared with us that the suspect was already in custody and that we were cleared from lock down.  We will ensure there is additional staff presence at the dismissal of summer school today at DVD/DVC at noon.
