Scout visited View Park Prep last week. VPP is a California charter school in Los Angeles. They have an ambitious goal: to send their students to the top 100 Universities in the US!
A View Park Knight practices Academic Tenacity, Respect, Self-Discipline, Leadership, and Citizenship, as depicted in the mural above.
As you can see, they take the Knight theme seriously at VPP — there are murals all over.
In fact, here’s a mural in progress. If you look closely, you can see the outline of chess Knights. Very cool stuff!
