Due to the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County, LA County Health Department guidance, and LAUSD’s decision to begin the 2020-21 school year with no students on campus, the Accelerated Schools will start school on Monday, August 17 in Distant Learning mode.

Our Story:
Get Accelerated

Nothing is impossible if you have vision and determination.

That’s what our founders believed when they opened The Accelerated School in 1994 in South Los Angeles. TAS set new standards for public schools, and for parental and community involvement, and became a national model for change.

The Accelerated Approach:

Every child is treated as gifted.
