Ivy Bound Academy Math, Science & Technology Charter Middle School is a tuition-free, public charter school authorized by the Los Angeles Unified School District's Executive Board of Directors, and we serve students in grades 5th through 8th. All of our teachers are dedicated, credentialed professionals who take pride in knowing each student individually. Balanced with a challenging curriculum, our teachers also focus on developing awareness of value, self- worth and confidence in our students as well as encouraging each student's unique talents to flourish to their fullest capacity.
All of our classes are equipped with the most advanced technology available to schools today. This includes interactive Smart white boards in each of our classrooms, iRespond student response systems, SOAR Microscopes for science, PowerSchool Student Information System, and three full computer labs to assist students with their studies. Students and teachers at Ivy Bound use a variety of web based programs to enhance the lessons being taught and to keep students engaged. One such program is ALEKS which uses artificial intelligence to help them grasp mathematics concepts to close the achievement gap and help them move a head.
As a result of the success of our student focused program, on May 14, 2013 we were granted a second petition by LAUSD, to open Ivy Bound Academy 2 in Northridge! IBA 2 will be an exact replica of our original Sherman Oaks school and will open on Monday, September 9, 2013 for the 2013 - 2014 school year initially serving 5th and 6th grade students. The 2014 - 2015 school year will include 5th through 7th grade students and we will be at full capacity serving 5th through 8th grade students in the 2015 - 2016 school year.
Our 2013 -14 school year began on Wednesday, August, 14, 2013 at the Sherman Oaks campus. We are currently accepting applications for the 2014 - 2015 school year. The application deadline is January 31, 2014 and the lottery drawing for the 14 - 15 school year will be held on February 12, 2014.
IBA 2 is currently holding open enrollment for the 2013 - 2014 school year. Applications are available under the "school documents" tab and seats are being filled on a first come, first served basis in the 5th and 6th grade.
