Watts Learning Center

The Watts Learning Center (WLC) will be a world-class, child-centered, K-8 institution of learning with strong ties to families and the community

Welcome to Watts Learning Center Charter Middle School

We are proud to offer a "World-class Education" in the inner-city of Watts, for the heart of our community, with the sole purpose of inspiring our children to see their full academic potential, and creating a culture where our students have a love of learning.
We focus on cultivating a culture where our students seek to be high academic achievers. We build our students with confidence to endure in this world, teaching and encouraging strong work habits towards as they strive for their dreams. We encourage them to be lifelong learners. We cultivate a system of ethics around them so they will become ethical models in their communities and among their peers.
We cater to educating the whole student -fostering mindful academic curriculum and content; urging critical thinking and problem-solving skills; encouraging respectful peer to peer, friend and adult relationships. Through academia, athleticism or physical activity, and extracurricular activity we provide a model of education that develops the whole person, community, and fosters their voice to stand for what is right towards growing positive and progressive neighborhoods.
At Watts Learning Center Charter Middle School,

In partnership with

WLCCMS is committed to serving healthy meals at appropriate times and ensuring students have adequate time to eat. To that end:


❖ Breakfast will be served in the classroom daily during student’s advisory class.

❖ Lunch will be scheduled in the middle of the day for a 35 minute period.

School bathrooms are open during the school day to provide students with ready access for hand-washing prior to eating.


Healthy Snacks

We are asking children to bring healthy snacks that fortify their brain power.  Please do not allow your child to bring hot chips, gum, candy, or soda for snack. These are not foods on the LAUSD list of healthy foods.
