RAMON C. CORTINES HIGH SCHOOL FOR THE VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS

Los Angeles Unified School District opened this state of the art campus in 2009.  Two thirds of the 1,700 students live in the local Downtown community.  One third come from throughout LAUSD.  The school is organized around four academies – dance, music, theater, and visual arts.  In just a few years, Cortines students and faculty have already achieved important awards and recognition for excellence in the arts.  The Grand Avenue Partners are proud to offer support for this important new educational resource.  Learn more ›
