Unique Charter School Gets Approval From Hart District

khts_schools_chalkboardThe Albert Einstein Academy for Letters, Arts & Sciences received unanimous approval from the William S. Hart School District on Wednesday night. The charter school is unique because it offers students the option to learn from up to five different languages.

 

One of the school’s founders, Rabbi Mark Blazer said, “The very exciting thing for our district and for Santa Clarita in particular is the school allows something that no one else in California has, which is a charter school that offers Hebrew, Spanish, and Arabic.” Blazer added, “It offers a breadth of languages like Greek and Latin, these are things that are just not offered [in California].”

The Einstein Academy was originally denied charter status by the district in a split vote in February but now it’s one of four charter schools in the district. The school has received support from Congressman Buck McKeon and Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich.

President of the Hart Governing Board, Paul Strickland said, “If you are going to be working for the government in any capacity and you are able to speak Arabic and Hebrew and you have a base in Greek and Latin, you can be able to communicate with probably anyone in the entire world.” Strickland also noted, “It’s an entry way for getting a wonderful job in the future.”

Changes to the petition included giving students the option to choose their basic language. Originally, Hebrew was mandatory; now students can pick between either Hebrew, Spanish, or Arabic. Students also have the option to learn a second language including the previous three plus Latin or Greek.

The school is currently accepting applications and classes will begin this August. For more information and how to submit an application visit www.ealas.org.
