Synergy Quantum Academy opened its doors on September 7, 2011 to 400 freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. In 2016-2017, we enrolled up to 580 students in grades 9-12. At the end of the school year, we had 180 seniors. One-hundred-seventy of those seniors graduated. That's a graduation rate of 94%!
We are one of two small public schools located on the Dr. Maya Angelou Community High School campus in South Los Angeles. As a S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) focused high school, we are preparing our students to be the innovators of tomorrow.
We are fortunate to have exceptional teachers, counselors, and support staff. Our teachers implement Synergy’s Four Key Instructional Strategies that have made Synergy Charter Academy (grades K-5) and Synergy Kinetic Academy (grades 6-8) successful:
1) Focus on Fluency,
2) Focus on Academic Language,
3) Focus on Schemas, and
4) Focus on Time on Task.
As students come to school every day, we ask them to be mindful of their relationships with others, work hard to do their best every day and, bring out the best in each other every day, in every way.
Parents play a very important role in their child’s education at Synergy Quantum Academy. They ask their children daily what they have learned in school. Parents attend parent conferences, parent meetings, sports events, and other school activities. We take pride that our parents are active participants in their child’s education.
We strive to prepare every student for college. Our vision is to produce students who are creative thinkers, motivated learners, and lovers of knowledge. Every day I look forward to working with our students, their parents and our staff to make these dreams a reality.
