About Kayne Siart
The Kayne Siart Campus is part of the Camino Nuevo Charter Academy network, a community of high performing charter public schools that prepares and empowers students for success in college and in life.
Our K-8 public charter school serves the children and families of the Koreatown area of Los Angeles. Our comprehensive approach integrates academic rigor, community, family, and wellness supports to empower students to thrive in a culturally connected and changing world. Learn more about our approach.
Our mission is to educate students in a college preparatory program to be literate, critical thinkers, and independent problem solvers who are agents of social justice with sensitivity toward the world around them.
Our school uses an education model that ensures teachers are meeting the educational needs of all children. Our inclusive practices ensure that students with disabilities receive the same quality instruction as their peers in general education classrooms, with additional supports.
Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles
Our students have access to music instruction during school and after school (up to 18 hours each week) through the YOLA (Youth Orchestra Los Angeles) program. The program began as an adaptation of Venezuela’s revolutionary El Sistema music education program, but it is now an innovative model in its own right, guiding students and teachers from nearly 100 music programs around the country. Our school has the only in-school and after-school YOLA program in Los Angeles.
Wellness and Mental Health Services
Our wellness and mental health programs offers parent support groups, parenting workshops, student support groups, art classes, English classes, Spanish literacy classes, cooking classes, substance abuse prevention programs, individual and group counseling, crisis intervention and teacher training.
After School Program
In partnership with Think Together, our school offers an after-school program with both academic assistance and enrichment activities such as computer training, homework assistance, athletics, and college-preparatory counseling. Tutoring and project-based activities are also offered every school day until 6 pm.
