Visit School Website


La Causa Charter School is a bilingual/ESL school (English and Spanish) in which parents, staff and community collaborate to develop and maintain a positive learning environment. There is a focus on fine arts and STEM education, which is evident in our school's offerings. They include: video production, robotics, Project Lead the Way, art, music, physical education, computer science and launch lab. Our school uniform policy promotes school safety, improves discipline and enhances the learning environment. We offer free breakfast and lunch for all of our students. Families must enroll at the school, rather than through the district school selections/enrollment process. Families must contact this school directly for enrollment.
