Maybe you didn't notice when it stopped being the Eastern Star Home for Women -- that 1931 Spanish Revival casaMore grande on Sunset that was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1989.

This all-girl institution "provides more than a traditional, girl-centric learning environment. [It]... equally prepares young women for leadership in our ever-emerging global world."

Offering grades six through 12 and enrolling around 450 students, 31% are "students of color." Students come from 138 elementary and secondary schools and from 71 Los Angeles zip codes. Over $2.5 million in tuition assistance is awarded annually.

Crestwood Hills Cooperative Nursery School
986 Hanley Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90049

Crestwood—part of a statewide group of cooperative nursery schools—believes a child's "work" at this ageMore is play. 

"Children are the architects of their own education; given a rich environment of possibilities and a minimum of adult intervention, children will learn to make choices, resolve conflicts, and solve problems," according to the school's mission statement.

Since the school is a co-op, each family is required to work at the school a minimum of two times per month per child and if necessary two workdays (per child). The school is a living legacy of  a post-WWII push for cooperative housing in Los Angeles, led by the Mutual Housing Association, which built Crestwood Hills. It's also a perfectly up-to-date exemplar of how community and parental involvement can make an ordinary school extraordinary. Located high up near unspoiled Crestwood Hills Park, it's an idyllic place for kids to learn and grow.
