Mission Statement and Vision


Calvert Charter for Enriched Studies is a student centered institution, focusing on excellence, producing students who are life-long learners, literate, culturally sensitive, morally responsible, and prepared to be leaders of the future.

Calvert provides a place where parents, staff, and students share in the responsibility of a learning environment of trust and mutual respect. All stakeholders effectively communicate, collaborate, and support the high academic and behavior standards to ensure that all students achieve their greatest moral, social, and academic potential to become productive, thinking members of society.

From Mrs. Evans

Dear Calvert Families and Friends-

    It is hard to believe it is already November. Just last week we were experiencing record breaking heat and now the weather truly feels like fall. As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, I look around and see so many things for which I can be thankful. 


    Thank you to everyone that works tirelessly to make Calvert a wonderful place to grow and learn: our PTA, Calvert Green, SSC, ELAC, parent volunteers, teachers, office staff, nurse, custodial team, paraprofessionals, and cafeteria staff. Calvert is truly blessed to have such an amazing  group of people committed to one thing - creating the best possible learning experience for our cildren. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!


Blessings to you all,

Amanda Evans, Principal

Garden Rangers Blog


Visit the blog at


Our Garden Rangers deliver our interdisciplinary garden-based education program that allows students to learn in a wonderful outdoor classroom- the garden! Our program offers students six introductory lessons about their school garden. Our program schedule allows all students in K-12 to visit the garden throughout the year. Students learn about the rules in the garden and develop their own, fun garden names. They also explore the garden and help it grow by planting new seedlings. Students learn about the different soil types and which type is in their school garden. Students explore the beneficial and harmful insects that live in their school garden. Climate and Seasons: Students explore the Los Angeles’ ecosystem and the types of weather conditions that different plants prefer. Students learn about the anatomy of a plant and learn to identify which part of the plant we commonly eat. Students work together to harvest and prepare food from the garden. The students care for and maintain the garden. This is the ultimate lesson. They can control the space through their efforts. Our Rangers blog about their work every week. Here are the latest.

Morning Drop Off and Driveway

The safety and well-being of our students is of the up,it's concern. Keeping this in mind, there are three areas which need to be followed to address this goal...

~Our school grounds open at 7:30am. Supervision is not provided prior to 7:30am. If you need to drop off your children before 7:30am, Creative Kids is a paid option that is available. Please call 818-471-7454 to discuss enrollment. Please do not drop your children off in front of the school or inside the school prior to 7:30am.

~When dropping off students please pull up all the way to the telephone pole before dropping off your children. This will allow the flow of traffic to continue.  If you would like to volunteer to assist during drop off and pick up please come to the office or call 818-347-2681.

~Please cross at the cross walk when walking your children to school. This will help Calvert to continue having a safe traffic zone.
