On Nov. 2, the Pico Union neighborhood council voted 10-0 to support the University Prep Value High School conditional use permit for our building at 1929 W. Pico Blvd., the new permanent home for UPVHS. The Pico Union neighborhood will grant us a letter of support for our February meeting, when we go to the Los Angeles City Planning Commission. Once we have that approval, the construction will begin, and, if all goes well, construction will end by Sept. 2016. We hope for our classes to begin next year as soon as construction finishes. Our freshmen that started off at 700 Wilshire Blvd. on the fourth floor will be the first graduating class in 2019.
Nov. 2 was a very big important step in this process. In the words of our principal, Mr. Doyle, “Last night’s meeting was very exhilarating. When I introduced students, families, and staff, the council clapped and was very impressed with our school. We are on a path to creating a successful future for our school.”
