Full-time Teaching Assistant


School Overview
Endeavor College Prep is a transitional kindergarten through eighth grade charter school serving the historically underserved neighborhoods of Boyle Heights, Lincoln Heights, and surrounding eastside communities. Endeavor opened in 2009 as a 4th-8th grade middle school and merged with Futuro Prep in 2013 to become a TK-8 school serving over 600 students.  Among our early accomplishments are a 2012 California Distinguished School Award and a #8 ranking in USC’s 2013 list of top charter schools in the state.  Our student population is 100% extraordinary, 97% Latino, 95% free/reduced lunch, 38% English Language Learners, and 14% of our students receive special education services.

Our team is made up of a highly collaborative group of teachers and staff who share a passion for closing the achievement gap. We use a co-teaching structure in elementary grades modeled after the successful Uncommon Schools and Achievement First schools on the east coast. We have high expectations for academics and discipline, and simultaneously value joy in the classroom, making learning fun for our scholars and teachers. We are moving into a beautiful, newly renovated campus in south Boyle Heights August 2017.
