there will be no richland middle school

Mar Vista Voice - November 1, 2022

(From Damien Newton) Richland parents have been pretty certain of this for a couple of months, but LAUSD made it official. Richland Avenue School will not be opening a new middle school campus in place of the LAUSD offices on Colby Avenue. Plans for a 'Richland Middle School' have been changed due to damage to the existing bungalows requiring more expensive renovations than what LAUSD was willing to spend.

Richland will remain a French Immersion school that people need to apply to get their children into, but as of next year will only be a K-5 school. Daniel Webster Middle School will be adding a French Language 'tract' for students wishing to continue their bi-lingual education into middle school. The tract will physically replace one of the charter schools that is sharing space on the Webster campus this year.
