History of School

Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter School opened in 1924 and currently teaches students from Transitional Kindergarten through 5th grade.  Over the years, the school has expanded its facilities and has educated many different grades along the way.  Beginning with the 2010-2011 school year, Sherman Oaks Elementary added a Transitional Kindergarten for children with fall birthdays. In addition, starting in the 2011-2012 school year, Sherman Oaks Elementary became an affiliated charter school, granting us more autonomy from LAUSD in the areas of budget and curriculum.

To this day, the school prides itself on its academic excellence, emphasis on creativity and exploration, and its rich cultural diversity.
