    Hello and welcome to Jack London Schools 

    We are located at 12924 Oxnard St. Valley Glen.

    Between Grant HS and LA Valley Collage, next to the Orange line.

    We serve students between the ages of 14-19 who dropped their gpa, fell behind on credits, had little interest in school, or required a different learning environment other than a large comprehensive high school.

    We provide the opportunity to; retake courses, get ahead on credits, and/or graduate with on the job experience, and a career skills certificate!

    Our students have the option to co-enroll at LA Valley College thus receiving double credits for passing college level classes.

    Our mission is to provide students with personalized instruction, social-emotional support, and occupational skills which will prepare them for college and careers after high school.

    The vision is to provide students with the skills, experience, and a plan to attain a job and work to pay for college or provide income to lead a comfortable life.

    Because of our small class sizes we are able to provide students with personalized instruction, in-class intervention and on-going technology support. Our teachers and academic counselors work together to provide each student with their own individual graduation plan. We provide our students and parents with individual student progress reports every two weeks and acknowledge their successes at our bi-weekly school wide celebration.

    Assistant Principal: Mr. Santiago Vides

    Assistant Principal: Mr.  Vides

    My name is Santiago Vides. I am the assistant principal at Jack London Community Day School and Continuation High School. I enjoy working with students and parents to improve student achievement and completion of their high school diploma. I have a total of fourteen years of administrative experience in elementary through high schools levels. Also, I have nine years of classroom teaching experience in grade levels K-12. I have experience serving at-risk students and students with severe to moderate learning disabilities, as well as gifted students. I had the opportunity to serve in small schools of 100 students enrolled, as well as schools as large as 4,200 students enrolled. I have experience in budgets, school operations, personnel, Title I, and ELL Programs.

    As an educator and a teacher, I believe that all students will learn if a safe and nurturing environment is provided for them at school. I am an instructional leader with a desire to collaborate, committed to fostering a positive environment and a community of learners. I am an effective bilingual communicator (English and Spanish), and value the individuality of all stakeholders.

    As your new assistant principal, I look forward being supportive of established programs designed to improve student achievement and safety. I also look forward using all resources to improve the school educational programs. I am a team player and enjoy working in collaboration with school staff, parents, community members, and district administrators. I look forward to the opportunity to serve the Jack London students and community.
