Reopening Protocols and Plans

Gregg Anderson Academy opened August 9, 2012. The school is part of the Westside Union School District located in the northern section of Los Angeles County, specifically the Antelope Valley. The school serves K-6 education students both in general and special education. Gregg Anderson Academy is a school of choice. Students selected to attend the school were chosen through a lottery. Uniforms are mandatory. All classrooms have state of the art technology with a Smartboard in every classroom. Gregg Anderson Academy is the home of the Aviators, where students soar to new heights. Our mission is to create an environment that ensures successful learning for all students through utilization of STEM and AVID strategies. With these strategies we encourage our students to be innovators, inventors, logical thinkers, and problem solvers. Our students will become contributors to their community, now, and in the future.
